Crysler uses a electronically shifted overdrive transmission. This transmission is designed to go into a 'limp' mode if the computer sees a problem with any of it's sensors. 'Limp' mode will usually lock the tranny in one gear. When mine went on my wifes minivan I brought home my scanner so I could keep clearing the trans control modules fault codes to keep her out of 'limp' mode long enough to make it to the shop. I believe disconnecting the battery for a few minutes will also release her from 'limp' mode. The best thing you could do would be to have her looked at. Could just be a bad sensor or time for a new tranny. If you think this is what you are experiencing try diconnecting your battery for a few minutes and see what happens.
