Several things can cause your transmission to be stuck in second gear. Broken or detached shifting linkage will cause the problem. A broken shifting for in the transmission can also cause the problem.

Stuck on high gear wont shift to 2wd or low in 4x4?

need more info.. is it a manual 4WD that you have to pull the lever on the transmission hump to engage the 4wd or is it push button 4WD?

When you take off your transmission is stuck in low gear is the transmission bad?

Does it stay stuck in first gear? or does it change and when it changes does it seem to wanna slip... if it does shift and it shifts smoothly it might be the kick down lever that's going to the transmission... sometimes they can become rusty making the vehicle shift at much higher RPMs then normal, making you think that its the transmission. If its not that then it might be the bands, or servos... im not a transmission exspert, but I do know somethings about them... Also, it might be the filter... sounds weird, I know, but always check fluid levels and filter as well, a clogged filter or old fluid can make the transmission seem bad, when its actually just the fluid and filter... lots of things to consider... thanks, hope ive helped.

What does gear ratio incorrect mean?

The transmission control module has detected that the transmission is trying to mechanically shift to a lower gear than intended. Try dropping the transmission oil pan and changing the transmission oil and filter. If this does not fix it you will have to have it looked at by a mechanic.

Why wont your eagle talon manual transmission go into gear when running?

It is quite possible that your clutch is not disengaging the transmission from the motor. Also, your synchros could be bad, which would not allow it to go into gear.
