    So the trans on my 97 dodge 2500 wont downshift. It just started the other day.If you stop at a light it just takes off in third. I checked the kick down cable and it seems fine. If I shift it manualy it will go into second but it seems like it never goes down into first, It doesnt slip or anything. Any Ideas Guys.

    Sounds like your shift solenoid is bad, the governor pressure solenoid and sensor are also known to go bad.. There easy to replace, drop the pan and swap them out.
