WELCOME to The Diesel Garage!

First check fluid in trans for proper level, then look for discoloration of fluid and smell for a "burnt" smell.

the tranny on those does shift electronically, so it could be a sensor of some sort, what do you use it for

Like was said above, sometimes sensors can get metal flakes magnetized to them causing all sorts of mayhem.

Maybe when the trans fluid was changed, they used the wrong ATF, too.

check around the transmission there should be a few sensors down there, start by unplugging them cleaning them and plugging them back in
