Unhappy Transmission Issues

Hi, This is my first post so, Im hoping I can get what I need. I have a 1997 tj 6cyl 4.0L And Yesterday while i was driving it it acted like it didnt want to shift out of first and would rev up high and then i stopped and tried to drive and now it has no gears. Doesnt work in 2wd or 4wd. I was wondering if Ya think the transmission is bad or there is some other issues. Thanks for your time

Im throwing these codes.
12 Direct battery input to PCM was disconnected within the last 50 Key-on cycles. - Which I know isnt anything.

37 Relationship between engine speed and vehicle speed indicates no torque converter clutch engagement. An open or shorted condition detected in the torque converter part throttle unlock solenoid control circuit. Incorrect input state detected for the Park/Neutral switch. Auto only.

And Either 51-52 Cant remember on the top of my head. But they are saying the same thing

51 A lean air/fuel mixture has been indicated by an abnormally rich correction factor

What does the fluid and filter look like? Have you checked them?

I havent checked the filter but the fluid is good. A little dirty but no speckles or flakes and it doesnt have a burnt smell to it.

Ok. I'm not knowledgable enough to be of much help, but I will at least give some ideas and help put the thread back into rotation.

Check the fuse for the solenoid, actuation of the solenoid if it has power, and verify the linkage works. If all of that checked out, I wouldn't know where to go from there. A member here named Jerry Bransford seems to know quite a bit about these transmissions in particular and may be of benefit here. You might consider shooting him a PM and see if he's got some insight.

Thank you UFOtestpilot Ill give that a shot. Now I called a transmission shop and they are saying they think its the park/neutral switch. I did some research on that and my jeep will start up every time. I hope I can get some help before I have to take it in and get scammed.
