Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that could prevent it from shifting. Governor pressure may be too low, there may be an issue in the valve body, or there may be a problem with the kickdown band. If it's not adjusted properly or the servo isn't working for whatever reason then it won't shift into second.

Have you checked for fault codes?
