Check fluid levels and maintenance time. Sound like a torque converter or valve body internal solenoids problem.
Also scanned the transmission module, to search codes in order to know exactly if you have some fault code stored there.

You need to remove top off gearbox and with a pry bar or screw driver pull the selector back into neutral Your gearlever has popped out of selector Gearbox does not need to be removed

SOURCE: isuzu trooper stuck in 1st gear
Likely the forks on the shift rail inside the trans are sliding on the shaft or are worn. I believe your unit needs to be removed to check this.

SOURCE: first gear drives fine but
If the solenoids are all new and the problem persists, I would look at what controls the solenoids. The Powertrain Control Module energizes the shift solenoids based on information it receives from various sensors, ie. speed sensor, throttle position sensor. Turn your attention to these items and away from what has already been repaired. The only other solution is, the transmission is bad.

If the moudulator (vacuum controlled) is bad it will stay in low,Not sure what tranny,but if it has a vacuum line going to it ,start there,if you pull the vac. line off and fluid drips out ,it's bad.
If a 700r 4 speed ,Pull the cover for the governor (should have a wire clip over it,like a master cyl clip ,kinda) It's just pressed into the housing. A small amount of fluid will leak out. Just grab the governor by the end and pull it out ,The gear on the end is plactic,if it's "applecored" the governor can't work. I've replaced mine a few times.
Oh yea ,check the kickdown cable first,make sure ,if you pull on it ,you can feel the spring pressure aginst it as you get to the end.
