Default Auto stuck in 4th gear

Thanks for the input which is correct. The transmission on these truck stay in 4th gear to get to home or to nearest dealer. I took mine into the dealer, they reset the code, road tested it and I drove it 7 miles and "clunk" back into 4th gear. Next day returned to the dealer with engine light on, with additional problem that my "ECO" light wasn't showing when in "ECO" mode. The senior tech recognized that the solenoid/switch board was bad inside the transmission. The dealer replaced the board, fluid and $1100 charge to Dodge warranty and the problem is gone. Thanks goodness for my warranty. Apparently this problem does occur rarely, but common enough to be recognized by dealer's senior techs. Seems like a design flaw to place a circuit board inside the transmissions, really bad enviornment for electronics. Thanks again for the inputs.
