I would believe a transmission issue if the car at least gave me a limp home mode. I did not get a limp home. But then, I suppose the rear diff doesn't have any reason to stop engaging and then suddenly engage.

Why would the transmission start working normal after allowing one wheel to turn in drive?

At this point I am at a loss for the next thing to test. Should I take it to an indie who can look at the trans ecu? I am too afraid to drive the car should it leave me stranded again.
