Hi Karen, It would seem that a speed sensor has become defective on your vehicle. Take the vehicle for a digital diagnostic scan, which will pin point the actual problem, saving you time and money, which I'm sure will be welcome in the new year. Have a very happy one and many more. Regards John

1992 Subaru legacy wagon will not shift up from first gear. it is an AT.

run the fault but all you describe is operated from the VSS sensor ( vehicle speed sensor)
it tells the cruise control the vehicle speed , tells the TCM the vehicle speed so that ratios can be changed, activates the speedo,and will report with a check engine light to report a transmission problem
run the fault codes first

I have a 2002 kia rio and my check engine light came on the dianost said the problem was 4th gear incorrect ratio! What does that mean?

The purpose of the automatic transmission is to match the engine's optimum power and torque characteristics to the driver's desired rate of acceleration and speed by auto-selecting different gear ratios or 'speeds' to power the wheels.

2005 chevrolet cobalt automatic transmission will not shift into overdrive

Low trans fluid, dirty transmission filter, clogged valve body in transmission, bad trans controller, or vehicle speed sensor. There is no dipstick to check trans fluid. I would start by having trans flushed and filled and codes scanned if problem still persists take to a certified transmission shop unless you are an experienced mechanic

What are the symptoms of a speed sensor going bad on a 1997 jeep grand cherokee laredo 6 cyl.

Since alot of things rely on data from the speed sensor you will "usually" get an ABS alarm, little or no shifting,no indication of speed on the speedometer, and the check engine light. without the abs light and with a speed indicated I would lean toward a transmission problem

Won't cahnge gears and it not the transmisson,

you can try to replace a small plastic piece bought from the vw dealership for about 35 dollars--it controls all the gear changes and is located under the air filter on the driver side of the vehicle--it slips through another piece and often breaks because it is plastic
