Hello and welcome, I think by the way it sounds you have a bad transmission fluid temperature sensor or the wiring going to it is shorted. You can try renting a scanner from auto zone and pulling any diagnostic trouble codes and clear them and the engine may start then.

WOW do you trust the shop? Had it been acting up any before it did this? I find it hard to believe it would need a new trans?
