Trans shop time. Count your shifts (if there are any) to determine what shift isn't happening (probably the 1-2 shift) and let the tech know. It could be a simple solenoid R&R or even just a speed sensor issue.

Sounds like my initial problem...would drop to 2nd gear when it hit OD...another thing to try is running the codes and see what you come up with, also try to put it in 3rd not drive and see what happens...I would bet on Shift solenoids..11.28 each at my dealer.

good luck
