You can take it to a place like AAMCO, they will check it out for free and let you know what kind of problem you maybe having. Call them and see if they do it for free brfore you go there.

You need a 5V going to the trans sensors. It could be the PCM or the wiring. There is no easy fix unless you have exceptional diagnostic skills and the necessary equipment. Sorry for the bad news, hope someone else has better idea.
