Hi,
I had a simalar problem with my '99 Ram 2500.

It wouldent shift out of first either after my speed sensor had gone bad due to "sudden changes in aceleration". Not what your thinking. Somebody did a hit and run on my truck and slammed it sideways into a pole. They struck only the passenger side of the bumper and the pole took out the driverside truck bed aft of the wheel. They were both straight forward fixes, but somewhere along the line the sensor got dinged up.

The sensor is actualy located on top of the rear diferential. I had to have a shop fix it or my insurance wouldent cover it so Im not shure how dificult a fix it is but it is a bit spendy, I think it cost about 3 or 4 hundred for the shop to fix it.

Hope this Helps

Can a faulty speed sensor in a 96 dodge ram automatic make it only read 1st and 2rd gear


not likely, the speed sensor sends the info to the pcm and will affect gear change, though its highly unlikely that the speed sensor can make the pcm "read" first or second gear, speed sensor sends info to the pcm to help it decide when to shift gears/apply abs/ etc
