also just one thing that i have seen is the connector at the right rear of the trans getting moisture inside it and also wil push trans fluid up thru it and short it out , if there is fluid in it , will need to replace solenoid body

Is it hard to do? He just got a rebuilt trans, and he's gone a few miles so he should probably change the tranny fluid anyway....
