    The transmission on your 1998 GMC Sonoma is controlled by the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) The PCM combines the engine and transmission control modules. I have been a GM tech for over 25 years and I have never hear of a code description of "transmission module unstable" If you could send the code number Pxxxx that would be a big help.
