need more info.. is it a manual 4WD that you have to pull the lever on the transmission hump to engage the 4wd or is it push button 4WD?
Does it stay stuck in first gear? or does it change and when it changes does it seem to wanna slip... if it does shift and it shifts smoothly it might be the kick down lever that's going to the transmission... sometimes they can become rusty making the vehicle shift at much higher RPMs then normal, making you think that its the transmission. If its not that then it might be the bands, or servos... im not a transmission exspert, but I do know somethings about them... Also, it might be the filter... sounds weird, I know, but always check fluid levels and filter as well, a clogged filter or old fluid can make the transmission seem bad, when its actually just the fluid and filter... lots of things to consider... thanks, hope ive helped.
The transmission control module has detected that the transmission is trying to mechanically shift to a lower gear than intended. Try dropping the transmission oil pan and changing the transmission oil and filter. If this does not fix it you will have to have it looked at by a mechanic.
Std. transmission? Bad clutch? Auto transmission? Check transmission fluid level
It is quite possible that your clutch is not disengaging the transmission from the motor. Also, your synchros could be bad, which would not allow it to go into gear.
your transmission is out. your transmission is out.
Because it is in "Safe" mode.
the tcm has a hard code stored and has gone into safe mode
The governor is stuck.
The transmission computer defaults to second gear when it detects a malfunction and sets a code. You need to have the system checked with a scan tool to know possible causes.

The automatic Toyota may be stuck in park because of transmission problems. The transmission may be jammed or stuck in that gear.
my automatic transmission is stuck in neutral. how do you get it into gear
If it's in limp-in mode you need to take it to a transmission shop and have it diagnosed.
you could either have a bad syncranizer or the throw out bearing is up
Maybe car is in park.
