Kind of interesting. My 2001 did the same thing today. After researching, the 'not shifting' is actually by design. It's called Limp Mode. It's to alert the driver that there's something wrong with it.
In limp mode, you only have 2nd gear I think. Are you sure it's shifting from 1st to 2nd or maybe it's realy just starting out in 2nd gear?
Was yours 'bucking' while shifting up or down?
