Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.In most cases if you are having a problem with the transmission as well as overdrive holding the computer will usually set and store a fault code and or codes, in order to begin to know what is causing this you are going to need to start with scanning the system to see what the fault code and or codes are that should be setting. If you can get this done and post back with the results I will help you get this resolved.

There to common grounds you may want to check, one is the G131 located on the left side of the intake manifold and the other ground is the G300 located in the in the LH side Kick panel. Start with making sure both are clean and tight.

Its a possibility but I would suspect you should be getting a fault code , unfortunately if there is a code it can not be retrieved with a code reader, you will need a full scan tool.
