Every gear is drive

I have a 96 automatic 4 speed 4x4 ranger… I just replaced the gaskets and valve body and solenoids in the transmission along with filter. I have everything back together but the truck thinks every gear is drive. Why could this be?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It ended up being the gear selector valve, since it was a new valve body I never pulled out the gear selector valve and made sure it was aligned with the valve.

It seems like an issue with Transmission. First verify the gear shifter is connected properly, and if possible attach images of the new work you did with the Transmission.

Problem is I never touched the shifter on the transmission. All I did was bought a new valve body for the transmission. With new solenoids filter and gaskets. New valve body came pre-assembled with gasket already on the inside. All I did was place the new gasket on the outside between the valve body and transmission. Bolt the valve body on the transmission, bolt up the servo cover , connect plugs for the solenoids power, bolt on the filter and then bolt up the pan. Put in fluid and then connect the battery ... Then I turned on the car and then have no gears besides drive. Park is drive reverse is get the point.
