Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the vehicle will not move with the shifter in gear then you either have an internal issue in the trans, it could be very low fluid level, or you could have a broken CV shaft.

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