Sounds like a programming issue.

Could possibly be the APPS needing to be reset

Is it hunting between lock and unlock or does it not lock at all? If it is hunting reset the apps and see if that helps.

I agree on resetting the APPS. I always say start with the easiest and cheapest first.

Unhook your batteries for atleast a half hour, hook them back up, turn your truck to the on position, slowly and steadily push your accelerator all the way down and back up. If there is anything I'm missing I'm sure someone else will be along soon to help out...:Thumbup:

Could be,bad lockup solenoid,boost valve problem(broken spring cover is common),bad convertor,or just a wiring/sensor problem.Your going to need a trans shop to do some pressure tests,and check the wiring out if your not mechanically inclined,and able to do them yourself.It is highly unlikely an APPS RESET is going to fix it. Im going to take a guess at a bad convertor seal,it happens now and again.
