Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have a handful of things going on depending on exactly what the symptoms are. If the trans still engages but doesn't change ratio then the problem may be electrical, but if it stops pulling altogether then the problem may be internal mechanical or hydraulic failure. Low fluid level can also prevent the trans from engaging.

Does it stop moving altogether?
Has fluid level been checked?
