Most reputable shops will give you a year or 12000 mile warranty on the rebuild. Take it back to the shop for repair.

As Tom said, TAKE IT BACK!

I took it back the transmission is fine it's a wiring problem nothing to do with the work that was done on the transmission.

If it will not shift gears there is a transmission problem, be it mechanical, hydraulic or electrical.

After some research and some checking it was a bad ground to the brake switch.
