It could be that the oil level in the transmission is too low and thus not giving enought pressure to operate the gears.

it could be the fluid level but depending on how many miles are on the trans you could have bad seals and might need a rehaul. but check the fluid level first.

That transmission has electrical valves that are energized when shifted into drive.That would be a the cause.Most important color of fluid,it should be reddish.NOT brownish.If level is low it wouldn't require turning of the key to get it back in gear.It should move,but you would here or feel it slip due to loss of pressure from low fluid level.
