Exclamation '97 C230 Transmission Issues

Hello, I'm not exactly skilled on tranny repairs, so I'm hoping someone can help me. I started having problems shifting around 2 months ago, it would shift a little rough in the lower gears. I assumed it was running low on fluid, and I intended to figure it out in due time. Fast forward to yesterday, as I was driving across town the tranny apparently went into LIMP mode. It was originally in 3rd or 4th, but I parked and when I left to go home it shifted into first and is now stuck there. It also shifts very abruptly into gear. I serviced the tranny last night, dropped the pan & added new fluid, but to no avail. It's still stuck in LIMP mode. Is there a way to get it out of LIMP mode? I'm fixing to take it to get the codes read, and I guess I'll have more information after that. But any insight you could provide would be deeply appreciated. Thanks!!
