erratic trans temp gauge

The wife and I were riding the quads today and had my little girl sleeping in the truck. I left it running with the air on for 2 hours or so. ( we checked on her often )
After loading up and driving a few miles the check gauges and tow haul light came on. The trans temp was sitting at cold. It came up to normal temp 2 times in 6 miles and the lights would go off but then would come back on.....
The truck is an 04 250 FX4 with the 6.0

I do not have a scan tool.
Wanted to see if any of you guys have any thoughts...

Thanx for your help

Could also try a post in the 6.0 section. Not a good call to leave kids in vehicle running or not. Years ago had to pull a Bronco II from a pond that had a kid in it left alone. The outcome was difficult for family and responders.

I am with AMSOILdealer, I think its a terrible idea to leave a child unsupervised in the truck alone, obviously in heat with the keys IN and truck running. There are all kinds of great powerstroke forums out there, you did post this in the wrong section limiting your viewership. The .org is probably the best imo, please for the sake of your child dont leave her in a truck like that.

^^^agree

I have posted questions about my old tranny and got very little help as well. Why? You might ask. Well this is a good thing. We have such little issues with the tranny that 99% of the guys never have to tear into them so they have little knowledge with the trouble shooting.
