Most likely this is a failure of the year selector. The other possible cause would be an internal failure of the transmission or complete transmission fluid loss. Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
