Question about 1997 GMC Sierra
Wondering if the problem is in the valve body. The rest of the gears shift fine.
Put some transmission conditioner in and run for awhile, could be a sticking spool in the valve body from shellac buildup.

1st thing to do is test the system for codes, the problem is most likely a failed or stuck shift solenoid indside the trans, have you ever serviced the trans, sometimes a fluid and filter cahnge will cure these kinds of issues.

I would start with a transmission fliud and filter service.
I would then have the trasnmission checked out by a transmission shop. The transmission most of the time has the direct drum band is starting to go. The shops can rebuild it no problem, This is a very common failure wiith the trasnmission.

Testimonial: "Thanks alot richtko94'! I'll try that!"
Climb under your pickup and look where the cable connects to the side of the transmission and make sure there is not any mud around the cable or around the shift linkage hookup. If so clean it off and see if it will shift. We have found many of these with mud caked around the shift linkage or a lot of ice buildup and wont allow it to shift into park.
