99 Durango 4x4 5.2l, 98,000 miles. On a shopping trip today (40 miles from home) I stopped at a red light, and when it changed and I started to pull away, there was a jerk (like a downshift ) and then no shifting. It would rev all the way to redline. When I started off, it would always give the little jerk and then just pull till I let off the gas. The idle was about 200 rpm lower, and the dash lights were dimmer, as if the engine was dragging down. I am assuming this was limp mode.
There was no misbehavior up to this point. After getting it towed home, I put on the scan tool and got a po 500 code. The fluid was full, red, and didn't smell burnt. I have done several searches but haven't really found anything helpful.

Is it a bad shift solenoid, or a bad chassis computer, or a broken band, or something else again? Any ideas for me before I take it to a shop or a stealership? TIA
