Sounds like the shift interlock actuator failed

I can hear the solenoid click when i press down when I attempt to shift I believe it's possibly electrical

Then the issue is mechanical inside the shifter box... which would be weird because the only car that I'm aware of that this type of problem was the Chrysler/Dodge 2005-2008 Charger/Magnum/300. Have you checked the shifter box?

Can you put it in neutral, start your car then put it into drive?
