Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that could be going on and it will require some testing to determine exactly what the problem is. It may be an internal failure or it may be an electrical problem causing it to go into limp in.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to see what fault codes are setting in the trans controller. Do you know what codes are currently setting in the TCM?
