Sounds like the transmission is in Limp mode. I pretty sure it's the shift solenoids. I believe yours has the 1-2 and 3-2 solenoids or A and B.

thank you JRKPerformax this morning it started acting normally and 1st gear is back alive. most probably it will happen again. I will keep watching and hope it will not happen again. Many thanks Akram
