Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds like your trans may be going ito limp in. If the trans controller sees an issue that will prevent proper operation it will lock you in a single gear. This could be an internal trans issue or an electrical problem, it would be more likely to be an electrical problem if the trans has been rebuilt.

What year and model is the vehicle and what engine do you have?

I assume it's staying in third gear?

goes up to third and stay there, I put an other compurer of a 1999 durango and the trans. Work perect but shows NO BUS ON THT DASH
Transmission Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

It doesn't stay in third, it shifts up and down normally but just doesn't shift into fourth?

Whit the 1999 durango computer shift all perfect but on the dash shows NO BUS

If your PCM has failed then it will need to be replaced with the correct one. The part number from the original has to match the replacement with the exception of the last letter.
