One day later the car won't shift out of 1st gear again. Bad installation of solenoid,loose wire connection, incompetent mechanics? Transmission shifted like new for that 1 day. Shop notified and told to bring car back for diagnosis.

    get them to trace the wiring harness, sometimes the tranny is on the same circuit as other accessories such as the a/c, etc..and that may be causing the issue.
