    If this car has a TV cable, make sure the it is properly adjusted. If it isn't adjusted correctly, the tranny will shift out of first very late or not at all.
    If it is all electronic, it becomes a different game.

    All 700r4's are non electronic and have a TV cable.

    If cable adjustment won't help, the problem can be in the 2-4 servo under the round cover on the side of the trans.

    Does the Speedo in the dash have a stepper motor or is it cable driven? My GMC has stepper motors that went bad. Has to be desoldered and new one soldered in.

    Not all 700-R4 speedometers are cable driven, later models have the electronic output. I had to convert mine back to mechanical. If yours is electrical, check the connections and if they're good, I'd suspect the stepper motor as Budro mentioned.
