Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to just answer. Most likely what happened is a transmission solenoid or sensor is failing. When that happens, the transmission goes into what is known as a "limp in" mode and defaults to second gear. What you need to do is to have a shop connect their scan tool and read the TRANSMISSION codes. NOT the engine codes. Then you will have an idea ast to which sensor or solenoid is causing the issue. You may need to replace the solenoid pack in the transmission. The other thing it would be is a wiring issue between the TCM (Transmission Control Module) and the transmission.
I hope this information helps, and let me know if you need further assistance!
Happy Easter to you and your family,
