    Welcome to my world, You are not alone. this happen to me 3 years ago with my 97 Gu 4.5 Ti . Went to Wholesale Automatics thinking if I replace the valve body with one of there's heavy duty one it will be fixed. but no it didn't. I'm so use to it now , I always start the car up, take of in second, get down the road then put it in drive and good all day. So if any else who know's what happening to our auto on first start, please let Axemano and myself what the fix is . cheers Alex

    Ok I was using the logic that its either fluid, mechanical or electrical. Fluid seemed the easiest to check. Mechanical usually results in some noise or stiffness in operation, so possibly electrical?? Mine does not go into overdrive or whatever that top lazy gear is called, until the box gets to a certain temperature. This is controlled by the gearbox management board which in mine is located in the passenger firewall. Don't know if this can be altered or read with a scan tool to check.

    I think your has to be Electrical, maybe the switch or loose wire connection somewhere regards Alex

    Does the OD OFF light on the dash come On and OFF when you push the button on the gear selector?

    Yes mate. Actually I think it’s meant to be like that. I might have mislead everyone there. I was trying to guess why the op cannot get drive until his trans warms up. Mine not selecting the od until warm is I think what is supposed to happen and there is a temp sensing of some sort

    Sorry I have not been on the forum I don't have much time during the week
    Good to see that there is someone else out there with the same problem and the fact that you have Drive for so long it puts me to rest that I might not be breaking down just yet
    Have decided to change trans fluid filter and trans fluid today as a step one provision also take hey visual inspection of internal wiring
    Everyone I have spoken to this week leads towards low fluid levels or fluid quality but I have my doubts thinking more Electrical as there is nothing in this car that isn't Electrical and communicates buy computer
    So I think the next step after today maybe some type of scan tool that works on this model tesY61 2005 or start paying someone
