Have you checked your transmission fluid? If the stick shows empty, your transmission is dead

the shifter has an interlock that wont let it release until you press the brake and that sends currant to a solenoid that pulls a small lever from locking the shifter from moving, most have a way of overriding this feature listed in the operator manual in case the battery is dead and you need to pull it out of park to maybe tow it
