Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the shifter is stuck in neutral it could be an issue with the shifter itself or something foreign in it blocking movement, it could be the shift cable itself, or the problem may be internal in the transmission. An internal trans issue isn't that likely.

With the wheels chocked and/or emergency brake set, can the trans be shifted by hand with the cable removed?
