You have a broken shifter cable or one of the ends has come loose form the levers. Can you check the cable at the trans and see if it has come loose?

Is this a dealer repair or can any shop fix this problem, What do you think a fair price for the repair should be? If the cable is just loose or if the cable has been broken?
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 8 years ago

If the cable is broken then you are looking at about $150.00 parts and labor at your local shop. And yes you can take it to your regular mechanic to have it repaired.

IF it has just come loose then depending on if the end of the cable has broken or not then it could be a much smaller amount.
