When I drive the car with no load it shifts fine, once I put any weight in the car the transmission will not shift out of 2nd gear. I checked the fluid level and it is fine. It shows that I have a sensor problem when I have taken it in. I would like to know if changing the sensor will fix the problem
Do you

It sounds like the 1st-2nd shift pressure valve selinoid that needs to be replaced

But why would it only fail when there is a load in the car and any other time it works fine

Because it senses an increase of pressure and with the execes pressure it fails
