Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

If the Transmission will not shift out of 1st gear ( assuming it's a Automatic Transmission ) that is either due to a mechanical failure in the transmission or a stuck valve in the valve body. So what you would need to do is remove the valve body and have it checked or have a Transmission shop remove it and check it. If it checks out, then the transmission would need to be removed and opened up to determine the cause of the internal failure only allowing 1st gear to engage.

Do you have any more questions on this?
