Hi, My name is Jay

If you turn key to on without starting the engine and move shifter does it still bind when moving it?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.

The problem sounds like you have a shift cable that is binding and will need to be replaced. The ends of the cable go bad and cause binding. Is the vehicle a floor shift model? If so has a lot of fluids been spilled into the shifter area?
