Default 1999 buick century transmission

I have a 1999 buick century that does not go into first gear, even manually, set codes for shift solenoid A. Will a shift solenoid prevent from going into first? it has 4t60e,

Yes it will. If you drive the car with a bad solenoid A, it will start in 2nd and shift to 3rd, but it will never go to 4th.

Just verify that you have power going to Pin E on the transmission case connector.

Default Thank you

your posting was a big help. I just didn't want to do all the work to change the solenoid if it might be something else causing the trouble. i will do the check you suggest.
