Unhappy 04 ram 2500 tranny problems!!!! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a 2004 dodge ram 2500 with the 5.7l hemi .... I was driving up a bumpy hill and i hit a bump and plaaaaaaaa....i stopped moving!! It just makes a winning noise when i put it in ( park,reverse, drive, 2,1, 4 wheel drive ) nothing works ..... so long story short i had to get the truck towed.. and it sits at my house... could it be the transmission is done??? or maybe a vacuum hose or some kind of switch ??? i pulled the dip stick and there oil in the tranny and its not burnt.. At first i thought i snapped a U joint but everything looks solid... PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!

Crawl underneath the truck and look for the wiring harness that goes to the tranny. Look to see that the connector hasn't come loose from the transmission case.

hey welcome to the forum! I have a 2004 slt 2500HD automatic but it is a 5.9L cummins and had a similar problem. the tranny would not shift in to 2,3,4th so i took it in to aamco and they said OH YES! NEW TRANNY! $3800.00! But i then went to a local auto mechanic that has been in the business for years and had contacts to check with and he told he that it was a simple problem but can run about $700. It was the shifting solenoid and vacuum governor that is attached to the transmission. that is what was bad and it did cost me $650.00 but that is less than $3800.00! hope that helps.
