Would check your transmission fluid level. See if there is any moisture or oil in and around the transmission module if so you found the issue. Could be a number of things at this point without further info. Good Luck!

The transmission fluid level is normal. And there is no moisture around the module. What other issues could it be?

Any warning lights on or flashing?

25

Nope. Sorry i just saw that you answered. It had a check engine light for the catalytic converter but that was it. It cleared itself when the battery got reconnected. What it does is if you disconnect the battery for 10 seconds and reconnect it it will go into reverse and drive. But after a short distance it start to loose power and slow down and wont go into any gear until you do the battery thing again.

That CAT code may be clue to your issue. The tranny may not be the Problem? If the cat is becoming restricred...the vehicle will loose power. Any other codes stored...or...maybe a flashing Check Engine Light?

No the cat has been a issue since 150k. There have been no new codes pop up and the only stored codes is emissions. It has to be the trans because thats the only thing that would make since for the battery disconnect to make it move. The engine has plenty of power the trans just wont engage. Another person said because of the battery disconnect fixing it, the cause could be the tcm. But im still not sure thats why im asking here.

Ok....if we disregard the CAT issue, then I would agree the trans computer..TCM...could be the issue. However...when that happens codes are set in the TCM. Suggest you have this vehicle scanned again. Do not DC the battery so the codes will not be cleard. Get back with results.
