My 2005 Cadillac DeVille won't start. The shift indicator

My 2005 Cadillac DeVille won't start. The shift indicator shows the car to be in Reverse. However the shift lever will move to any gear and the indicator always shows the car in reverse.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** is caused b y a bad transmission range sensor, if the computer thinks the shifter is in reverse, it will not allow it to start, and since the light always shows reverse, its a bad sensor, and is common on these?
