2009 Ford Edge gets stuck in 1st

My Ford sometimes stays in 1st then I pull over and stop and restart car ,then it works fine.do you know what’s wrong?

Have you checked the level of your transmission fluid? What color is the fluid? Has it been changed according to the maintenance schedule?

any check engine or other lights lit up on the dash during driving? Does Ford still use the Overdrive light on the shifter handle? if so, is that light flashing?

No lights light up on dash yes overdrive is on shifter.its dose it 2 times a year I just pull over to side of road and turn car off and restart then works fine

I checked the fluids good
