1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I recently had the Jeep in to change the power steering pump and replace that nasty heater core. Two days after I picked it up the transmission started making whining / grinding sound and wouldn't shift properly. When I'd disconnect/re-connect the battery cable (reset the computer) it would work for a little bit then revert to the noise and bad shifting.
How do I check the code for problems?
Can a tranny solenoid be replaced in this model?
Any other suggestions to track down the problem? Thanks
