I'm afraid your transmission is in lock-up mode. Do the basics...check oil level and condition then try removing the battery negative terminal for 10 minutes then put it on let the car idle for 10minutes and then go for a drive to see. If problem still there then you;ll have to bring it to your local dealer for a transmission diagnostic.

As your Auto transmission is fully electronic, it could be anything from faulty sensors sending incorrect signals to the trans computer, or faulty internal components. Your best bet is to have the trans computer scanned for 'fault codes' (as the computer monitors and retains all faults) by your local Ford dealership.
This process will identify the likely component/s which are causing this problem.
My guess is, there may be a problem with the 2nd clutch (yes that's right, automatics have internal clutches!), input and/or output shaft switches sending incorrect signals to the computer.
But, there could be so many other possibilities....so, I recommend you get the codes scanned and go from there.....

It sounds like the valve block, propably the2-3 shift valve is fluctuating , possibly worn. or a weak spring.
You would need to remove, open and check the valve block.
Has the ATF been changed recently ? because that could cause it. New oil could flush the valve block so its very clean , removing any debrit ,and then it loses its integrity

sorry but time to visit the transmission shop. the only thing you could try first is Lukas Transmission oil sold at parts stores one quart only. make sure you get the oil for transmissions and not the crankcase.
