it should be electric lock up. there should be a connector going to the side of the trans. disconnect it and see how it runs . don't know what is also connected to the trans , but this worked on an old chevy i had years ago.

Could be a pcm or a trans solenoid issue.

Inside the transmission. Try this. There is a plug that is on the driver side of the trans. It goes into a black plastic box that's about the size of a post card. Unplug it plug it back in. Make sure you hear it click when plugging it back in.
