Transmission problem
2002 Oldsmobile Aurora V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic

My car suddenly wouldn't move forward, had reverse no drive. A couple weeks before electrical had issues, back locks, windows wouldn't work, messages of doors open, only metric measurents for mileage etc. Shop says I need new transmission, had no previous leaks etc, any chance electrical is connected? Thanks, a mom in a panic!

Do you
have the same problem?

If you had electrical failure of some sort, you would have reverse, and also you would have some form of forward motion. It is meant as a fail-safe or limp home. The question is what condition and level the fluid is in. Have you tried all select forward ranges from manual 1 to OD, and still nothing? I would suspect a broken forward sprag clutch or something internal. You may have some debris in the pan when removed.
