Good morning,

First, let's make sure the transmission fluid level looks ok. If the transmission is low on fluid it can keep it from going into gear. The transmission on this model is checked with the engine running in neutral (set the parking brake).

The dipstick should be on the passenger side of the engine compartment in the rear.

Are you able to check the fluid level?
