It acts like its in neutral no matter what gear.

Randy if the fluid is full and it will lock and NOT roll in park and its being physically being shifted into the gears the problem is going to be an internal failure inside this transmission and it will need to be replaced or removed and torn down and more than likely rebuilt
by default no matter what happens electronically with the transmission it should always have reverse and a forward gear
when you do not have either there is an internal transmission failure i am sorry to say
