BTS not shifting out of 1st gear

The ABS light came on the other day when leaving the house for work, as i got down the road it wasnt shifting out of 1st gear. The shifter was very loose. I tore the steering column apart and the only thing wrong was the bushings on the shift tube. I ordered them and replaced them along with the dash around the instrument cluster. Shifter now moves like it should. Hooked the batteries back up, checked all fliuds and went for a test drive, ABS light still on and still wont shift out of 1st. Drove about 3/4 mile and started running very rough (trying to die). Turned the truck off checked the TPS wire, fired right back up, still running rough and limped it back home in 1st gear. It will manually shift to 2nd and reverse. Also tried pushing the O/D off button with no change. Any thoughts?

Sorry it was so long, didnt want to leave out any important details. Thanks.

3rd brake light is good. I got the wife to shift through the gears while i was under the truck, cable and everything is working correctly. Changed out the ABS fuse and the electronic shift fuse. Changed the CPS and the CPR fuel filter, still wants to die, tried swapping tanks with no change. Nothing ive tried is working, can yall think of anything else?

Fix what is wrong with the speed sensor. The computer thinks the truck isn't moving, so there is no need to shift out of first gear.
