Question about Oldsmobile Achieva
Check any wire running near your transmission. Especially running behind or within the lever, on the transmission that shifts to drive. It's a long shot but something is shorting out somewhere to do with your shifting movement. Good Luck Darrell S

That means that there is a short to ground that occurrs when you put in gear. Check dipstick tube, wiring to TCM and wiring from TCM to transmission shift solenoid.
Problems of this kind may be difficult to spot.
The repairer must patiently work with tester on connectors and wiring harness to spot the problem.
When the problem is a short, like in your case, reading Ohms between two points with engine off may reveal a short to ground more easily than reading volts with ignition on.
