Default 2003 Honda Rancher Es 4x4 Automatic shift issues

I have an issue with the shift process (automatic shift). The problem started when I shifted down. After I down shifted it would not shift at all (no click or anything) then I would have to turn the key off then it would shift. Eventually it got to the point it would not shift into neutral or first gear (i.e. would not start) so found out online how to check it out by bypassing the neutral safety switch just to check see if that was the issue. Got it to crank and shift (and it still will at very low speed just like it is supposed to 1-5th) but when you accelerate relatively fast it will not shift wont even click (if you turn the key off it will shift fine) please keep in mind only if you jump neutral safety switch can you crank it with out it will not register Neutral or 1st gear (now the speedometer shows 0 at all times) Thanks so much
