You have some sort of internal issue. Have it scanned for codes and get back to us with the code. It most likley will have to be removed and rebuilt

The sensor on the rear end is what controls that they are about 20 dollars and easy to replace. Just did another one of those a couple of day's ago same problem.

There is no vacuum that operates the trans it is done electronicly with the use of the sensor on the top of the rear diff. You may have a bigger problem with the trans, if it was able to still move then I could have you run a test. How is the fluid?

It could be plugged which would cause an insufficiant flow of fluid. Let me know what you find.
