It has put your trans in limp mode. Check your fuses, you have an electrical problem for sure. Look underneath as see if your speed sensor wiring looks ok

i got everything working now except the speedometer. speed gauge want work at all now rpm works shifts correctly switched a different cluster panel still no go on speed gauge. we had to replace the Ignition switch it was in bad shape wires spliced and some not properly covered .

97 Tahoe still no speedometer. i have been reading up on it could be stepper motor in the cluster or the speed sensor or wiring down on tranny. my mech says he has power there but in my reading it says that the sensor can crash and will not allow the computer to pick up the signal and operate the speedometer
