Hi, my name is***** you have a bad ABS wheel speed sensor it can cause the transmission to go into limp home mode. You need to get all of the sensors working then erase the fault codes in the transmission control module. Once the codes in the module are cleared you will be fine as long as there are no other codes stored.

Let me know if you have any questions.
