One or both of the speed sensors on transmission are bad. One is an input sensor, the other is the output sensor. If either one of these shows an open circuit (which they do when they go bad), then the transmission goes into Limp-Home mode and stays in 2nd gear. Those sensors are cheap enough where you should just go ahead and change both of them.

I have a 99 Dodge Ram - automatic . I can shift into any gear, but it won't move forward unless I put it in low 1. When I get to 10 mph I can shift into drive and it drives fine. No slippin

Sounds like it needs new valve kits, and or a major overhaul, try checking selector linkages are lined up and tight, otherwise, if it has access to the sump pan then, drain fluid, take pan off carefully, look to see a nut threaded over a locking screw, hold screw with screwdriver and loosen nut anti clockwise, once loose, hold nut and turn screw inwards counting how many turns until all the way in and note this number, then turn 5 full turns out, hold screw and tighten nut, replace with new oil, check pan for filings, note and clean refit sump pan.
