Theres a sensor on the tranny that is hooked to your shifter by a bar link, and if out of place or lose or is bad it will do that, when or if it happens again try wiggling the shifter not to hard and ahould help until u get it replace not exp at all if you do it yourself mine was right in front of the tranny easy to get to.
