    are you sure it's starting in first and not second? If the trans has lost electrical power or gone into limp mode it will try to start in 3rd and only when you pull the shifter back will it start in 2nd. you should have the trans side of the pcm scanned for codes. a regular engine scaner will not be able to do this only the dealers POS scaner can scan the trans side. An easy thing to do is check the plug at the trans and make sure there is no water in it and reconect it.
