Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Assuming you don't have a brake related issue preventing it from moving, you either have a transmission failure, possibly very low fluid level or a broken CV joint.

What model is the vehicle?

Transmission Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

With the trans in park are you able to push the car or do you feel a mechanical lock?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No we can't push it if it's in park.
