Default 97 ram 2500 5.9v8 over-reving problem...HELP!

Hi everyone, I have a 97' ram 2500 5.9 360v8. Trucks got like 200k on it. I just had the tranny rebuilt like 2 weeks ago. So today i stopped to get gas. after i fueled up i started the truck and the tack shot up to 2000rpm and wont go back down. Its revving high constantly while driving and around 1500-1700rpm. I turned the truck back off and on and every time its in park or neutral its still revving and sustaining at 2000rpms. I'm scared of blowing the motor and/or transmission and i know it def. cant be safe to drive like that. I checked to see if maybe the throatle cable was broke or stuck and its not. I'm TOTALLY lost on this one!...Anyone have any idea what could be the cause and/or how to solve/diagnose the problem??? any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks

If it doesn't have any codes or is not storing any codes that you want to keep, I'd start by disconnecting the battery to reset the PCM.

Something went quirky in the PCM and the electrons that were supposed to go left went right and caused a mass electron jam.

Honestly, I have no clue. I work with electronics and find that many issues can be fixed with a reboot. You are welcome, my friend. Good to hear the reboot fixed it.
