Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
If the overdrive off light is on and it's sluggish taking off from a stop then I'm sure the transmission is in limp in. When engine or trans controller sees an issue that will prevent proper operation it will lock you in a single gear, which gear depending on the vehicle.
There are many possible causes for limp in ranging from speed sensors, solenoids, pressure switches, internal trans issues, module or wiring problems.
What year and model is the vehicle and what engine do you have?
