I have an 2000 automatic 3.16i,The car is starting in every gear. I trasmission is also in emergency mode. I had adiagnostic test and it turns out that I had a faulty pressure sensor in the transmission . I decided to change the transmission and put in a new one,i also put in a new inhibitor switch the solenoid by the shifter.

However the car is still in emergency mode. Do I need to have the computer reset.

Does anyone have any ideas why this would be happening.

That is exactly what I am saying. The car can be started in any gear.

You changed the whole transmission for a faulty pressure sensor?
