Default Automatic Gear shifter locks up when cold

Only when it's cold outside and the engine is cold does the automatic gear shifter locks up and won't go into reverse, neutral or drive. I have to wait about a minute sometimes until the engine warms up. Anyone else have this happen to them or hear about it before? Maybe the tranny fluid is cold? That's another reason I love spring, summer, and fall. Happens at about 40*F and below. Thanks!

That would be something electrical inside the car.
