Hello, my name is ***** ***** I can help you with this problem.

You need to get the codes out of the transmission, you might have a sensor that is bad that is preventing it from shifting. Check fluid level and condition of the trans.

Let me know if you need more help or have any more questions.

Thanks, Dan

Speed sensors that fail can cause the trans to go into Limp mode, and it stays in second gear.

This will usually give you a code, and you can also look at trans live data to diagnose this problem.

Hello again Dan here,

I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you’re not pleased, or need more help.

Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help.

Thanks Dan
