2005 Dodge Neon SXT 2.0 gear switching problems

Hello, I have a 2005 Dodge Neon SXT 2.0 Automatic and the other day my car wouldn't go into any other gear but 2nd gear. It would go back to normal if I turned off and on the car. But then it would start with the same problem. By the time I got back to my house the car wasn't going into either reverse, drive, or any other gear. I'd have to rev the engine a couple times with the transmission on drive in order for it to catch any gear and that would be 2nd gear. The car would drive for a bit on 2nd gear then slip off the gear and it wouldn't go back. There's also a weird ticking sound coming from under the hood. Is it just a sensor? Or is it the whole transmission?

Do you
have the same problem?

Best to run a transmission scan for any unresolved electrical problems, let us know what if any codes are set.
