Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

The trans is going into limp in. When the trans controller sees an issue that will prevent operation it will lock you in a single gear to prevent damage.

There are many things that will cause limp in ranging from solenoids, pressure switches, speed sensors, wiring, internal trans problems, the TIPM, and the trans controller itself.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting in the TCM and then testing can be done from there. Do you know what codes are setting?
