Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You could have quite a few things going on. The issue could be related to the transmission range sensor, the trans controller may not be awake, or there could be a bus communication issue between modules.

Have fuses been checked?

Do you have a scan tool?

Did the problem start after a repair, jump start, etc?
