Transmission will not shift out of low gear when its at running temp. After it is shut off for 10-15 minutes and re-started it shifts okay

The check engine light is not on. In order for it to be the sensor or solenoid does the light have to be on?

Please advise - I am at a lost to the problem and unfortunately dont have a lot of money to try to fix it but it is my only vehicle.

Thank you for your help in regards to this matter.

If you have a problem, you need to start a new question specific to your vehicle. This one is eight years old and shows up on our list as having already received a reply. Unlike other sites where anyone can add a reply, this was a conversation between two people. None of the other experts are going to see your addition or have a chance to reply. That won't get you the help you need.

When you post your question, PLEASE list the engine size, mileage, and transmission type. That helps us find the correct wiring diagrams, and make judgments as to most common suspects and likely fixes. Also be sure to describe all the symptoms and related history leading up to the problem. The diagnostic fault codes you have are important too, but they only give us a starting point. Be sure to include those in your description.
