Default School me on transmissions (4r44e)

well, i just installed what looks to be a very recently rebuilt 1995 4r44e. i would guess it has under 10k on it..anyway, so i filled it up with 8q 2.5pints and started her up. I am getting a good clean shift into reverse. more rpms are needed to put it into first, second and drive..
I did not reconnect the speed sensor yet due to it being a complete piece of junk. but will tomorrow to see if that would have any effect on the problem...While it is running it has always been in limp mode (flashing od off) and not shifting out of first gear.
how can i fix this crap so i can get out to wheel!?
thanks

If it is anything like the fullsizes of that era you need the speed sensor hooked up. If its junk replace it.

this is very true. you need the vss (vehicle speed sensor) for the trans to shift properly.
