Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if the transmission is in limp in. When the trans controller sees an issue that will prevent proper shifting it will set fault codes and lock you in a single gear.

There are many possible causes for limp in including speed sensors, solenoids, wiring, the trans collector itself, or internal transmission issues. The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting and then testing can be done from there.
