If your pcm has stored any codes they are stored there untill they are erased with a scan tool so turning the truck off will not erase the codes. Also make sure you didn't accidently put it into autostick mode by moving the shifter from side to side while in drive. I can't tell you how many times people come into the dealer complaining that they are getting bad mileage and the trans isn't shifting because they are in autostick mode and have no clue. I really wish Chrysler would have added another detent that you would have to shift into to get to autostick.
I dont have my Diablo anymore so I will have to take it by the dealer to see if there is a code stored. I know for sure it wasnt in manual shift mode, that was my first thought when it happend so I tried shifting it up and down manualy and it was stuck in 4th. Not only on the display but the trani to, while driving it wouldnt shift up or down. It would barly move from a stop cause it was lugging so bad being in 4th from a dead stop
