Check your transmission fluid level.

Thanks for answering. The fluid is where it should be and fairly new.

Try disconnecting the battery for about a half hour. This will reset the cars computer. MAYBE that will get the transmission back on track. Just when you reconnect the battery take the vehicle for a half hour ride.

Thanks but did not help. Thinking it's a sensor but probably just a crap shoot without diagnostics. It won't respond at all until it is put back into park.

Like I said, It's chicken soup. It couldn't hurt.
