The problem is with the transmission overdrive circuit voltage is low. start by checking the #5 fuse in the fuse block under the hood. if it is ok check for voltages at the trans control relay. past that you may need to take it to a reputible technician for further diagnosis

How can I get my 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 5.9 48re out of limp mode?

this is for the Cummins but sounds like the issue you are having. Not sure why the voltage would go so low as to cause an issue...makes me suspect a failed component inside the tcm (assuming that is where the voltage comes from) causing low voltage to the circuts.

05 dodge diesel, code 0633, turns over but won,t start, what causes this.

That code will not cause it not to start. You got a fuel problem it sounds like. Try a little, a very little either. The injectors are **** on the common rails, lots of problems.

Check engine light on

you need to use a scanner. disconnecting the bat ground will work on most codes. it's safer to use scanner
