I did that before i took it to Aamco. I only got 12 (Recent Battery Disconect) and 55 (End of Codes) I just got back in from doing it again and still only the two codes. I have not disconected the battery in over a week and still getting code 12 and have put at least 100 or more miles on it since and the van has been restarted at least 30 times since. Could this be a TCM or ECM issue? Thank You

Code 12 will stay visible for 50 ignition starts - it's not mileage based. Some of the major chain auto parts stores will also read codes for free; check with one (second opinion) and see if they get anything besides 12. If they don't, I wouldn't be too concerned about the computer.
As for the trans itself, I'd speak to whomever rebuilt it 14 months ago. If you were having any kind of major trans problems, the first thing to usually go is overdrive. I would also have the radiator and cooling system checked, as that can affect trans operation since the trans fluid cooler works in parallel with the radiator. An overheating condition could have caused the limp mode.

Well the radiator is new also. I have no idea where the trans was rebuilt. So bassically if im getting no codes it is most likely the trans is shot? Thanks...
