I don't have any information for your model, but it sounds like you have a version of the computer-controlled transmission first developed by Chrysler. The most common cause of gear ratio error fault codes is excessive slippage in a clutch pack, due to wear and high mileage. The second cause is a problem with one of the speed sensor circuits.
With the Chrysler system, this type of fault code sends it into "limp" mode where it stays in second gear. You have to stop the engine, then turn the ignition switch back on to get it out of limp mode. You can often get an idea of the cause of this code by observing when it sets, and / or goes into limp mode. If there's an electrical problem with a sensor circuit, like a cut wire or corroded connector terminal, that will be detected right away when the engine is first started. If slippage is occurring in a clutch pack, the transmission will start out in first gear, like normal, and up-shift like normal, until that clutch pack engages that has the excessive slippage. That is when it will be detected and set that code.
