Default 03 Cruiser not shifting

I have an 03 cruiser that has started acting up. when you take off, it gets to the shifting point then seems to go into neutral but still seems to be slightly pulling like it is slipping when you slow down. I read something about safe mode and locking in second, but i dont seem to ever get to second.

Have you checked your transmission fluid level?

Is your engine light on? If so what are the engine trouble codes?

UPDATE! with further testing and driving, I have determined that the cruiser is not going into limp mode, i have no second gear. If i keep the shifter in first, it is strong and keeps pulling. when i have the shifter in a higher gear, as soon as it hits second, i have nothing. put a new output sensor on( just happened to have one)and a solinoid pack from wrecked vehicle. still the same.

A correct diagnoses of a transmission problem when there is no check engine light is best accomplished with a professional transmission scan. This type of scan will require a Starscan or a scanner tool that the dealers use.

There might a possibility that you might have an internal TCM failure but you need to verify if there are transmission codes that is stored.
