When something happens to the tranny, it is programed to shift no higher than second gear and they call it limp-mode.You may be able to get the generic trouble codes and get an idea or you can go to a dealer or a parts store and have them check for codes. The code will tell you what is wrong

First thing to do is check and see if the brake lights work, the brake lights power the release solenoid so you can move the gear selector from part to the desired gear.

98 Dodge Avenger Shifting Problem

I would take it to a couple of different trans shops for advice.
Not really possible to "test" a transmission by driving it.
It has an over-ride safety to shift up even if the selector is in low.
My first guess would be the clutches are slipping or there is a solenoid that is not holding.
May be trouble codes in the computer.

Tranmission won't into shift into D stays in 2nd. gear speed odmetor don;t work

Hi...sounds like you need to have your 3-2 shift solenoid in the transmission replaced. Go to a local Auto Zone auto parts store near you and ask them to check you computer codes to see if this solenoid shows up. They do not charge for this service.

My 1998 dodge avenger automatic will not shift out of second what will cause this the computer i hooked it up to just gave me these codes po733, po700, po734 the motor is a 2.5

code po700 is what the pcm gets from the tcm when there is a problem with the transmission-anywhere from fluid level, sensor, solenoid, tcm problem, or mechanical problem.
the situation you have with the car being in 2nd gear is called "limp-in" mode. so you can limp-in to a repair center.

98 dodge avenger transmission problem

codes will verify if it needs to be pulled out. More than likely it will as the electronics are rarely the problem. The computer senses a indifference in the ratio between the sensors so it locks it in limp mode - 2nd gear.
