Sounds like the transmission shop is correct, the transmission is seized up.

SOURCE: VSC OFF, Check engine and traction control lights are on

I would suggest having your mechanic scan the computer for viable trouble codes. WIthout that information, it is hard to determine the exact cause of your problem.

However, my experiences with the Tundra leads me to suggest that you have a bad Mass Air Flow Sensor...A concise scan and any codes would alow us to really help you out a lot better.

2001 Dodge ram 4wd transmission

Yes that could be. and the transmission control module is re learing the driving condition. I would give it a 2 week break in period. I would take back to the shop if the condition does not clear up in two weeks. They may have to re adjust the bands inside. This should be free of charge considering the shop warranty the work parts and labor. I would not let the shop tell you this is a different condition from being rebuilt. Checking the bands and adjusting the tranmission is part of a rebuilding processes.

Good Luck

Transmission stuck in first gear

You say you don't get a code.Did you check it with a monitor or is the check engine light not on? The cheapest thing to try are the input and output sensors. They are 20-30 dollars a piece. I think they are screwed in on the pass. side of the transmission.If that doesn't cure it you might want a transmission shop to look at it. Good luck and let me know, Dan
