Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you may have a broken shift cable. If the shift cable is broken or has become disconnected at either the shifter or transmission then you'll be unable to shift. If the shifter was stiff leading up to this that is a good indication that the cable is likely broken.

Do you feel no resistance when moving the shifter now?
