You may have an electrical issue in the transmission mode switch or instrument panel cluster that is causing the shift indicator not to work properly. This however does not affect transmission engagement. If transmission fluid is at proper level and the shift linkage is moving then the transmission should engage in forward and reverse ranges regardless of any electrical issues. Forward ranges will not be correct without electrical, but it will still engage. Since you have no engagement, your problem is a mechanical failure within the transmission.
