Hi JACUSTOMER-rvjtzgn5-.

By the way, it would help us to know:



-Is the shifter stuck in the Park Position?


-What else have you already tried?

It is not stuck in Park. It will move but doesn't "lock" into any gear position. The inidicator shows it is in park when it's in the park position but when it is moved, it doesn't select any sign R N D 1 or 2.
