Might be but, doesn't "Limp Mode" prevent any shifts except P,R,D? I think this might need a bit more detail in the description.
If you're in limp mode, you'll be stuck in 2nd gear. So basically all you'll have is reverse and 2nd gear, this is just to prevent further damage to the transmission.

Idle air control solenoid stuck open, or throttle plate open a tad? What engine, a 3.3/3.8, a 3.0 V6, or the 4 cylinder?

I've seen it work ways. 2nd only, and reluctant shift to 3rd (then usually back to 2nd).
