Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

With this combination of symptoms it is very likely that the transmission control module isn't operational, but it could be a speed sensor issue. If the TCM isn't awake it could be due to an internal failure or a loss of power or ground to it for whatever reason.

The first step in diagnosing the problem was to use a scan tool to see if the TCM will communicate, and if so to then see what fault codes have set. Has this been done?

Its does have reverse but only 2nd gear when going in drive. I can get up to 35 then shift into 2nd or 1st nothing happens. Will put scan tool on it and will let you know the results
