I wish I could help but you're not giving us anything to work with here? If you can go get fault codes extracted from the computers we can maybe point you in the right direction.

I mean the best thing to do would be to return to the shop whom did your transmission repair. Was it doing the same think as prior to that same repair?

No it wasn't. But I drove it home, it was fine. It sat 2 days, then drove and got those warnings in panel

Front drive trans R&R's are big jobs and lots can go wrong yes. Especially if you took it to an "aamco" were they hire $10/hr mechanics lol.

So pinched wire, speed sensor wire..ect can cause all this
