If you did not do so while replacing shift solenoid "A" (if I am reading your query correctly), disconnect the battery for 10 minutes or so, re-connect the battery, and drive the car for 15-20 minutes. This will reset the transmission controller, and allow the transmission to "relearn" your driving style, and the condition of the internals of your specific transmission. If it goes back into limp mode, check for codes again using a diagnostic tool capable of getting full information from the transmission controller as there may be a problem with it. For more help with this issue, I would recommend having a transmission specialist scan the vehicle’s computer and inspect the transmission thoroughly so that this can be properly corrected.
