4L60E Tranny doesn't leave 2nd gear

Ok so here's the layout. 1993 Suburban 5.7 TBI 2WD. Only light on in the dash is the ABS light. This is my friends truck so i will try to give good details. From a dead stop the truck starts to move like normal through first then second but i leave my foot on the gas past 2200 RPM's it will wind out the second gear but if i drop below 2200 when i coast without my foot on the gas then it sounds like its idling and when i it the gas it just revs.i have to manually go to 2nd for me to keep going.I have been reading and forsee 3 Possibilities,1-The cable i have to check from the tranny to the throttle body and make sure it snaps back.2-The speed sensor on the tranny and or 3-Shift solenoids.Any insight on this would be great. thank you. P.S On the tranny i found this number 8680514 with a big 8 on the side so im taking it that this is a 4L60E. If im misinformed please let me know.

If it is a 1993 it "should" have a 4L60E in it. If that is the case, there is NO CABLE.

From what you have typed so far, you have burned up the 3rd & 4th clutch pack. Time for a rebuild.
