Default overdrive

my truck shifts out of overdrive for second then locks right back up. it started out doing it once in the morning the first time it engaged. now it does it every time i hit a hard bump but so far it only happens in the mornings on the to work. it doesn't do it on my way home or at least not yet. i take the same road to and from work so i am hitting the same bumps. i am going to check to switch on the brake pedal to see if it is loose. past that i am open to suggestions cause i am really not a transmission guy.the extent of my know how stops at older ones without solenoids.

I think it's in the brake switch......if it does it often, just touch the brake pedal when driving that will unlock the converter, so does letting off the throttle so keep it steady. If it quits acting up the problem is the brake switch...there is hardly no adjustment to play with! But I got mine to work with a light spring on the brake pedal arm to hold it up. That was like 10 years ago! I was under the dash and saw it and thought what's this for? then I remembered!
