Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

If you disconnect the cable at the transmission will the transmission shufter lever move from park to low and engage in park? Will the shifter inside also move the cable?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Haven't tried that

The neutral light was on but went off and still not moving
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

So you problem is the transmission will not move in any gear? How does the fluid look and do you hear any noises?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Put gear shift in neutral and can't even push vehicle it's like the brakes are on or something

When you move the inside shifter does the transmission linkage move as well? If yes then you have internal failure of the transmission and it will need to pull it out.. The spinning is likely the front pump that has failed..

You have internal transmission damage and the transmission will need to come out..
