Default Transmission Trouble- Help Please

I'm a new member here with a tech question.
I have a 2002 Cruiser and have trouble with the automatic transmission; I was driving it when the car suddenly came out of gear; pulled over, restarted a few times, made it home.
Had a friend with a code reader who pinpointed the problem to the solenoid pack,. Replaced the solenoid pack and nothing- the car will only occasionally go in to gear; feels like it's slipping and then engages, sometimes.
Returned with code reader and no faults showing other than the battery removed in last 50 starts code. When he replaced the solenoid he did not clear any codes.

The car does not go into "limp mode" only occasional engages.
The car has 123,000 and has never previously given any mechanical or transmission trouble.
Any help towards next diagnosis would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in adnvance!

Question Re: Transmission Trouble- Help Please

Was the solenoid pack replaced with Mopar one?.....If not;It could be a 'bad'/'new' solenoid pack.

Go to a REAL tranny shop and have them do a diagnosis and and give you an estimate on the proper repairs. If you decide to do the repairs with them they will come with a warranty and you can move on to other things.
