It could be the valve body or the shifter module. When you put the car in Drive do you see D on the instrument cluster next to the clock?

Check the transmission fluid level. You have the tube to check the fluid level but will have to get a dipstick.

Transmission control module is on the passenger side of the engine bay. Towards the back, near the windshield / firewall

I know it has been a while, but were you able to find a solution to this?

I would check the 13 pin connect to the transmission. It can leak and cause the symptoms you describe. 

If that's dry, then most likely the valve body is the issue. Have you read the codes from the transmission control module yet?
