Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Depending on exactly what you're experiencing the problem could be in the transmission, shifter, or a shift cable issue.

Does the shifter not move and is stuck in second?
Or does the shifter move freely as if not connected?

Were you having any problems with it leading up to this?
