Code reader available? Are you close to someone that owns a scangauge? How old is your battery? Is it in top condition? The shifter motors have to have full electrical power or they become shiftless.
One of the upgrades that I did as a precaution was to upgrade the grounding connection from the battery to the frame. It appears a little on the spare side.
