The car is stuck in second gear, and the service engine light is on.
The vehicle speed sensor may be malfunctioning and causing the transmission not to shift. The computer will need to have the codes retrieved. I recommend that you have a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come and test the vehicle for you. They will be able to diagnose your gear shifting issue and recommend the appropriate repairs.
