If the actual shifter shows reverse but it is in park this can be due to a fault with the transmission position sensor/neutral safety switch itself.I have seen this switch assembly fail in the past before and cause issues like this here needing replaced.This will have to be checked/tested further to see if for sure this is the cause here and then from there replaced to resolve this fault.This is usually the most common cause for this issue here.
