If it's stuck in second gear, that is "limp-in" mode that allows you to drive slowly to a repair shop. You must turn the ignition switch off and restart the engine to get it out of limp-in. As a general rule, if it goes right to second gear as soon as you shift into gear, the problem is sensor-related. If it goes to limp-in during or right after an up-shift, it is more likely to be slippage in one of the clutch packs.
