Some of the newer computer controlled transmissions will not go into gear or shift until they are warm.

If a vehicle, manual or automatic, does not shift into a certain gear, there may be a problem with that gear. Gears get worn and need replacing in a vehicle's lifetime.
Automatic Gear Shift
An automatic transmission can lock in a Honda for several reasons. The most common problem is with the shift solenoids. These parts allow the transmission to shift and when one is malfunctioning the gearbox may not go into gear.
If your gear shift is freezing it could be because your clutch is not longer working. If you have an automatic then your transmission may be slipping.
I need to repair the gear shift cable in side a 2000 toyota corolla. How do you get in side the gear shift box to repair the cable end?
It matters if you have atuomatic or manual transmission. In an automatic car the gears shift on it's own. In an manual car you shift buy pushing the clutch and then shift from 1st gear to 2 gear.
Automatic Transmission. You can also get semi-automatics where the driver decides what gear to put the car in, but the gear changes are done by an automatic mechanism.

Stick shift, yes. Automatic, no.
There are several causes that an automatic transmission will not want to shift into second gear. The two most common causes are transmission pump issues and trouble with the vacuum modulator.

Automatic transmission? 2 vehicle will shift only from 1st to 2nd gear 3 vehicle will shift from 1st to 2nd to 3rd gear 4 vehicle will shift from 1st to 2nd to 3rd to 4th gear
If your speedometer isn't working then that gear needs replaced before it'll shift
More than likely your shift cables need to be lubricated.
