Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if your transmission is in limp in. When the trans controller sees an issue it thinks can cause potential damage or it thinks it doesn't have complete control it can lock you in a single gear.

There are literally dozens of things that can cause limp in. It could be a solenoid, speed sensor, range sensor, internal trans or valve body issue, a wiring problem or the trans controller itself.

When the trans goes into limp in it's because the TCM has seen an issue and set a fault code. the first step in diagnosing the problem will be to see what fault codes have set.
