Mine would not shift out of first until you turned off the ignition. It would get stuck like that after I went over a bump. Have a transmission guy (not AAMCO) put his meter on it and see if the solenoid valves are sticking. Cost about $300 to fix.

If you are still looking for the answer to this question, I had the EXACT same problem. It is a wire. I tried changing the fluid and filter, that did nothing. I ended up taking it to the dealer, and it was just a damn wire that burned out. They said it was common to the vehicle. Take it in, will only cost you about 100 bucks.

I believe the term is "limp home mode," whereas the vehicle will only operate in a low gear in order to get you to a repair shop.

Check the input & output speed sensor on the tranny.
(Disconnect the battery for 5 min or so & then reconnect it & see if it shifts normally.)
This will help you for a while but the sensors need to be replaced. (I'd change BOTH)

Check and/or replace transaxle control relay. A small "box-like" module found next to the transaxle control module on the firewall, and is next to the small "box-like" relay that controls the back-up lights. This fixed my particular limp-mode problem. This part is about $20 +/- retail.
