Update....so it seems to shift into reverse and drive when cold....once heated up I lose all control of gears. Simple answer given by dealer...is replace the transmission..but I don't trust them. Thier best interest is to charge 4500$ for replacement. They couldn't answer me when I asked why it would work when cold. New obd code is p0720

Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I have the same issue.

From what I understand, this is sometimes caused by warn brakes. They heat up which activates the TCS and it only turns off once the brakes cool.. Have your brakes checked..
