Stuck in 4th

Is anyone else having this issue. 2012 WK2 with 5.7, I'm getting stuck in 4th gear, service engine light on and remote start won't work. They flashed the tranny, but this is the 3rd time in 4 months

Sounds like the tranny detected a fault and switched to limp in mode... but I dunno. What fault code is recorded, did the dealer tell you?

And remote start won't work if you have a check engine light. Safety feature for the vehicle and you.
