Good evening
The more probable issue that's preventing the transmission not to shift is the abs light
We need to get abs up and running
Now were you got the 128 code.
We need to the code that starts out with a 136
Once you see that on the display it should give you more numbers like
136 Sid 4 fmi 3 or something like that, attempt to get me that abs code and we will take it from there.

Is this something I can clear myself without a scanner? If not I already have $46 into this and another $26 for a phone call. I hate to waist money if I'm going to have to take it to a shop anyways

I don't blame you
These codes you have any
3a transmission disegage fault
