what wrong with vehicle
Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.

There is a couple possibilities is you cannot get it to go into gear. The shift linkage itself could have come loose preventing you from being able to shift in gear, OR you could have a transmission pressure issue preventing it from going into gear.

what I can do to troubleshoot issue
Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.

For starters you need to check for any codes.

next you need to see if when you shift the vehicle it's actually shifting out of park. See if you can move it to neutral and if the car will move.
