    Likely in limp in mode indicating a fault has been detected by the transmission control module (TCM), either electronic sensor, actuator, circuit (wiring) or internal mechanical. Cost to repair is listed from least expensive to most expensive.

    Have the diagnostic codes pulled from memory, usually the TCM will have to be scanned and individual codes diagnosed, the CEL should be illuminated.

    Take it to the shop. It sounds like there's a problem internally. Check your fluid, if it smells like burnt root beer and is dark brown you have a serious problem.
