Might not be the cause but try checking all your earth straps are on and tight. Also check all wiring connectors related to the box. I had a similar prob with mine and ended up being the earth strap had come off.

What car are you talking about? from your profile, Falcon GL, I would assume X series. also its an auto right. V8 or 6?

If all this is correct and its stuck in 1st does it improve when the box gets warm? The reason I ask is I once had the same problem with a XD with Borg Warner 35 auto. Tranny would stay in 1st for a few k's until box was warm then would change normally. This went on for ages until it got so bad that it would roll backwards in drive down a slight gradient. The tranny had to be rebuilt. Luckily BW35's are fairly cheap to rebuild now.

By the way your post is in the wrong forum, should have been in
