Transmission is in limp mode. This enables you to drive the car to service. Anytime there is a transmission code in the computer even if nothing is wrong it will stay in limp mode until the code is erased. Most retail auto parts stores will run an obd2 diagnostic scan to determine the problem and erase existing codes, no charge (Auto Zone, Advance and others)

SOURCE: transmission won't shift out of 2nd

I have had the same problem before. Everything you have said matches the exact problems I had. I was also driving down the road when my problems started. My speedometer stop working and my car wouldn't shift out of 2nd. I had a family friend who is a mechanic check it out. He hooked it up to the computer and it ended up being the Turbine Sensor. However you would want to hook it up and find out exactly which sensor it might be because there is another sensor that can cause that problem as well. I think this happend to me about a year ago but the part costed maybe around $30 or $40.

We have the same proplem and replaced the sensor didnt help. Could there be another reason the car will do this? ( this was the one on the front right side of transmission).

it may be going into limp mode if the computer sees a problem,usally the speedometer isn't working or the output sensor is faulty,if it is in limp mode,turning the key off then back on will reset the computer

Good Evening, I have a dumb question. have you cleared any current or history codes in the transmission? They will default with codes in the system. Also make note on what they are. If any and we can go from there, and yes tcm would be the next place to go but more info is best as far as codes and such.

If the timing belt went or slipped you would have backfiring or worse. It is likely another issue such as cap/rotor, control module, sensor(s) or fuel pump. Is the check engine light on?

Hope this helps.

Sounds like your oil ran low and the pistons and rods are runnig without oil. This will seize the engine check your oil if it is real low put some oil in it and try to start it. If it starts you got lucky. Tahn find out how you lost all your oil before runnig it to much. If the engine doen't turn over than your motor is no good.

sometimes you cant trust those dummy lights, i would keep driving it or have your car parked and turned off and turn you key on to aux. and turn off and the turn on aux again, and the ck engine light will blink count the blinks and spaces and the car will give you a code and if there is something wrong, then the code is were you want to start, look on line for the code or get a 2001 dodge stratus manual that will tell you as well and then go from there
