Have the detent (kick down or passing gear) cable checked for binding holding the trans. throttle valve open!
Trans. shop or your mechanic can test it, have seen this on these vehicles before, may not be your problem but that needs to be checked as this will prevent shift from 1st gear! Have seen this cable bind in it's housing or get out of the groove at the gas pedal linkage. You may be able to check it yourself. Does it have cruise control as well?
Ok, no worries there as all these cables hook to the same linkage at throttle body (gas pedal linkage).
