To help us find a solution, we need to know why the SES light is on, so we need you to post the codes that you can get scanned at any local auto parts store or borrow a scanner from a friend. Why haven't you fixed the ignition interlock yet?

Sounds a lot like an ignition switch dropping a voltage leg. Look into a switch. Really easy to tell by checking voltages

I have an 02 envoy and had the same problem with lost gears. 2/3. I scanned it and changed one of the shift solenoid. I did the filter at the same time. That was a year ago. Now I lost overdrive. There is 4 solenoid sin this tranny. I say change them all when your in there around $40 each. I do my own work so i don't have to pay the $300 in labor each time you go into the tranny. Good luck
