Sounds like you have a connection problem between the BCM and the Connection to the ECM, a lot of Chrysler products have solenoid problems with the transmissions. Having the codes pulled would be a good idea at this point, there might be something stored in memory to aid in diagnosis.

Thank you, It was so bad that I took it to the dealer. They said the radio needs to be replaced and they added transmission fluid for a fine price of 330.00. I think you are correct I will have to see if there are nay trouble codes myself..
