Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The trans is in limp in for some reason. It's possible that the trans controller could be down but it's more likely the the TCM has seen a failure in the system and is preventing shifting.

There are many possible causes for limp in ranging from pressure switches, solenoids, wiring, internal trans issues, the TIPM, and the powertrain control module (which houses the TCM).

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