Clean and tighten the battery connections. Check your voltage with the engine running. It should around 14 when fully charged. The older GM trannys don't like low voltage conditions and do strange things. Mine said bye-bye... If your volts are good, get the fluid and filter changed at a transmission shop and have them check it out.
