If I put it into drive quickly after starting then it is fine, but any other time I put it in drive the trasmision starts in 2nd or 3rd. But if I turn it off and start over it is fine. Is it a sensor or some electrical problem or is it the trasnmision itself?

2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Question: after putting my truck into gear it often will start in 3rd instead of first.

I would get the codes checked. Sometimes when the transmission control module detects a fault, it will go into a "limp-home" mode, which can start off in 2nd or 3rd gear.

+unfortunatly I have also had this problem and the fix is transmission overhaul, as there is a simple oning failing that is the cause, if you put the selector in low and move it up as you drive it should still shift all the gears
