Hi & welcome to the forum.

If the box goes into safe mode it indicates a problem. Either ATF levels or in a sensor unit or perhaps the box itself. Check the ATF, make sure levels are good and that the ATF is a clean reddish colour that does not smell burnt. if no joy may need to get it on a diagnostic computer which should, with luck, pinpoint where problem lies.

Is your battery in good condition. My auto suffered due to the battery not charging and it wasn't getting enough power supply.
