Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You could have an internal transmission failure, a broken CV shaft, or the trans could be low enough on fluid due to a large leak that it can't engage.

Have you checked the fluid level?
With the trans in park are you able to push the vehicle or do you feel a hard mechanical lock?
