Bring it back to the guy who replaced the sensors. Sometimes its more than a senssor, there might be wiring to the sensors that is bad.

I replaced the sensors, should you buy the sensors from a dealer or a parts store?

Yes, all indicator lights work when shifting from p r n d. I was reading in the owners manual about the tranny going into a safe mode to prevent damage to the tranny when it senses a problem. Hope this helps. Thanks for keepin on this with me. I appreciate it.

I just remembered one I had not too long back. The wiring harness was chafed against the trans pan and cut through a wire. Take a close look at the wire harness and see if it touches metal anywhere then look real close at those wires.
