It could be low fluid. It could need service. It could be low voltage. It could be the ECU. Do you have any trouble lights?

I have a 1997 ram 1500 that wouldn't shift into overdrive. It was the dumbest thing ever that fixed it. The low battery ambient temp sensor in the battery box was disconnected. I hooked it up and it's been shifting fine ever since
