Have it further checked-could be a hung-up shift solenoid or valve body problem

An error has been detected by the TCM and it is in "Limp Mode" You need to retrieve the trouble codes to find out what is wrong.?Usually is a faulty solenoid on the valve body. Attempting to drive under such conditions would cause further damage to the transmission and cause it to fail completely.

Check the pins in the valve body solenoids harness, if one pin is broken, replace the harness
