Could be a BCM or solenoids acting up, have you serviced the tranny as you should? If not you may have fried the transmission.


That definitely sounds like you need some transmission work done.


Its crazy because the car will go into drive when the engine is cold..any suggestions?


I'm still thinking it could be a BCM or solenoid pack trouble. Have you had the BCM checked for codes?


We replaced the solenoid and trans fluid/ luck...ugh!


Just tried to research BCM and can't find it...what is it?


Body control module.
