I have seen a few things cause this. First does the speedometer work? If not the speed sensor in the rear end is the issue. Second check to make sure the trans control relay is switching on and you have power to trans harness at trans connector. Finally check to make sure none of the o2 sensor harnesses are pinched or melted as this can also cause it( didnt believe it either till i had a 00 ram with a rear o2 harness melted together that stuck in second)
