Check your fuses, you should find one labeled misc engine may have cruise control on that circuit as well. If this goes out the trans will have little to no oil pressure and will slip like crazy but will still limp home. I seem to recall reverse will slip but not as bad.

OK, so that fuse was blown? Unplug the transmission, does the fuse blow? If yes, unplug the cruise control. After that start checking for a short.

so with some research thats the trans control unit so could that mean that that unit is bad or something inside the tranny

Before you go tearing into the tranny, I would check every inch of the wire you can. A small cut in the wire could cause the short. Make sure nothing is melted etc. DO NOT put in a bigger fuse. The fuse is blowing for a reason, and circumventing that is just going to cause you bigger issues.

Just making sure you REALLY checked the wires out. We had someone before tear the transmission apart and find out it was a wire.... lots of work to find out it was just a wire. I would hate for you to do the same.
