    What year yukon ? Does it have a separate transmission control module or does it have a PCM -powertrain control module ?

    I do not know, but it was changing after you let your foot off the gas.

    Do you know how to do electrical testing with a volt meter , voltage drop testing . Checking power an ground circuits at a control module ? No code's find wiring diagrams here Videos on youtube voltage drop testing , electrical testing you need to know . Could be possible the control module isn't turning shift solenoids on .

Sounds like a sprocket in my 2008 Yukon denali striped out. Goes in reverse but not forward

Could be a valve body problem, a shift solenoid problem or the transmission control module causing this.

Why wont my 2001 gmc yukon shift back into park

I had this problem on a Ford! There is a flexible cable most likely from your transmission lever to your transmission. These wear out, and develop kinks, you will most likely have to replace it. However if you are a dyi guy inspect it thoroughly, you may fix it with Gorrilla Tape?
