I would check the codes first, write them down, then disconnect a battery cable, positive or negative, it doesn't make any difference, turn the headlight switch on and wait at least 30 seconds, this resets the computer system back to factory presets, turn off the headlight switch, reconnect the battery, if you have an alarm it may go off so make sure you know how to disable it, now start it up and see if you can drive it now, if not then something has went bye bye inside the tranny, could be a pump or even an blown seal.


Yu dont think its the transmission control solenoid somebody told me it could be that


Checking the codes should tell you that, but I think you have a pressure problem, as you stated the wheels will turn under limited power off the ground.


Yu think it could be transmission control module

i am wondering mark,he said she hit a bank,and i am having same problem,i notices sometime jacking it up maybe,i dented the trans. cover bad.wondering if this might be possible.bad time to have gonna do this first see what happens.i was also wondering about can check them with ohmeter and or test have to have book with schematic,and back-probe hot wires.u can use a light.two give a solid power input when in selected gear and i think the torque converter pump sol,will blink.wld have to read it again.have 3 projects goin on.sorry to jump in on conversation.i just know that even o2 sensor can show these codes.with all the technology the comp. can still store and even overload ecm which causes mis-readings.this is why i try continuity and alot i have done,and only 1 out of about 100 vehicles was broken,or corroded wire.but ill check all issues and kc boy stated.have a nephew said as you did and someone else,but i am moving fluid.thank you sincerely
