You really need to find out what code it set by having it scanned. Don't drive it for extended periods in limp mode because it is hard on the trans. Is your speedometer working?

How does the fluid look and smell? Did you clear the code? If the code is cleared does it come right back?

check the plug going to the solenoid pack. common issue on e4od and 4r100 as is the solenoid pack itself. the plug is on the pass side kinda on top. if there is corrosion going on then check for shorts - maybe replace with a new pigtail..... good luck
oh and do u have o/d control?
