You could try adjusting the band. or you could have a bad solenoid. could be other things also but those are two ideas.

Moises, you would get a better and more replies if you generate a new post, this one os over 3 years old and most of us drop older threads, somehow this one got by me. So that being said, it could just be the reverse solenoid stuck, but the only way to really tell is to have a tranny shop lug into the system, they can then run tests on the solenoids and watch the way they respond to commands from their system, then they will let you know what it will take to fix the problem.

we changed the rear band and it was fine until a few months, ive been told it could be the solenoid?
