i wouldn't think so cause the torque coverter will still be locked on and giving you horrible shifts all the way through the gears

ya mine will act normal til it decides it wants to play with me again. i have figured out that if you want to stop it for the time being drive it in 3 not D and you'll be fine. i use to not even make it 160 miles before mine would trip again since driving it in 3 i have surpassed 500 miles without the light coming on
