Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

Your transmission is going into limp in. When the trans controller sees an issue that will prevent proper operation it will set fault codes and lock you in a single gear. There are many possible causes for limp in including the trans controller itself, solenoids, the transmission range sensor, speed sensors, wiring, internal trans or valve body problems.

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 trans controller and then testing can be done from there.
