Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. What is the transmission model number from the ID tag and I see you have no codes. My concern is with the shorted wiring it could have damaged the TCM or blanked the software. If the wiring is good check the TCM power and grounds and if okay try a test TCM or have yours reflashed and bench tested and see if the problem resolves with a different or updated TCM indicating a faulty TCM. Let me know

The answer came to late, my driver was stranded over 1,000 miles from home office. I should not be charged anything for this.
Even though the answer may be correct on some instances it wasn't correct. After 3 mechanics looked at it, I ended up putting a rebuilt transmission in it. That was cheaper than leaving the driver out for days at a time, and after 3 mechanics looked at it and couldn't find a solution. It was reflashed twice and bench tested which didn't fix the problem.
