Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

If you can verify that the shifter cable is moving the selector on the transmission, and the transmission does still not go into gear, then it's a internal issue with in the Transmission. So the transmission would need to be removed and opened up to determine the cause of failure.
