Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if the transmission is in limp in and the battery light is on. The battery light will come on when charging voltage is not correct, but that may not be related to the trans issue.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting in the engine and transmission controllers. Do you know what codes are setting?
