I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question
If you put it into the lowest gear setting and manually shift up thru the gears, will it go into overdrive?
any warning lights on?
I need the 17 digit VIN number so that I can check for any service bulletins on yours for transmission issues

ok, 5uxfa53523lv83670.
yes, it will switch gears when in manual.
Expert:  ebrock63 replied 2 years ago.
Ok, good. That does mean that the guts of the transmission are working and this is electronic - transmission control module, shift solenoid, wiring.
Let me check for any service bulletins
Expert:  ebrock63 replied 2 years ago.
I dont see any related service bulletins for this.
Do you know if they checked the TCM to make sure it had the latest software updates. If not, this needs to be done as the TCM may just require a reflash with newest software
