Good evening,

Is the check engine light on? If it is, do you know the code?

I attached a flow chart and possible issues.

The throttle position sensor is critical in shifting. If the ECM does not see the signal, it will not shift.

Check the voltage with a scan tool to see if there is a signal being sent to the ECM.
