Welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you with this problem.
I am very sorry for the long wait
when these transmission will have reverse and manual 1 and manual 2 but NO movement in drive range the issue will usually be the forward one way clutch assembly inside the transmission has failed
this can not be a computer or electrical issue as by default even with the transmission with all the electrical unplugged off it it should always have a forward gear in drive
with NO movement in drive range i am sorry to say the transmission needs to come out and apart and the forward one way clutch replaced
