Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if the trans controller isn't awake or you're missing transmission range sensor signal. Either way, without the range sensor signal present you won't have a shifter display and the starter won't engage if it doesn't see the shifter is in park.

If you jump the starter and then drive it does the transmission shift?
