Question about 2001 Chrysler 300M
When I have to break for a light or stop sign It is hard for my car to start driving again. It was scanned at a shop, of course they said it was the transmission, but I'm hoping that it is something less than an expensive transmission problem. What are some other things to look for?

SOURCE: Transmission down shifts hard
Check the trans fluid for quantity and color. If it is not a good red color, try having it changed and get the filter cleaned. If that looks okay, you may have a bad shift solenoid. Look for leaks around the trans case. Leaks on top around the solenoid are a sign that it is going bad.

sounds like a short or loosening wire somewhere - have any "after- market" accessories been added ??? new stereo or amp ?? check these item and there wiring if so. It could also be the ignition switch itself......unfortunately - you may have to wait for a permanent failure to find the cause

assuming you have checked the trans oil and it is full, it sounds like you need to take it to a good trans shop and have it looked at. it could be something simple or something major and expensive

But I am afraid I can't tell you want all these codes mean for your car. It was probably not related to the change in fluid that was performed. However, it is serious and should not be driven until fixed. Risk of total destruction of the transmission is too great. I would assume the symptoms are so diverse that it may be a bad transmission control module. Which is about $200, and fairly easy to replace:
But there are other possibilities, such as a bad relief valve could be letting main pressure drop too low.
This is the type of thing which does require an expert and can't easily be done remotely.
