Only have 2nd gear

I was pulling up to a stop (going downhill if that matters), and had a harsh 3-2 and 2-1 since I was pulling more vacuum than I have tuned for. After this, it seemed like the transmission was stuck in 2nd.

I am running a TCS... It's worked fine for a year and a half. It's commanding the shifts (or at least it thinks it is) at the right times... When I opened the glovebox after it immediately happened, the light was not changing colors to indicate a gear change... Possibly TCS?

That would be my guess, does the car have the ability to control the transmission?

Doubtful. There is no MAF or TPS... I made a T for the VSS, but it would have no load values.

Without any power at all the transmission will default to second, might want to check the fuse.

no it should be stuck with 2nd only until it gets some kind of electronics.
