eather the shift knob ,the button you push in is broke inside or the nutural saftey switch is bad.it is the switch that works with the break peddle to put in gear,neither is a expensive fix.both is under $100.00.

I live in a small town so $100 an hour on top of that (they have to go across town to grab parts) I'm guessing they'll charge me $400 y under then.Thats affordable luckily just a week o 2's pay.I'll tell our local mobile repairman what you said when I call.He's the kind who'll put parts in the truck that he has on hand just in case its what was thought by the customer which can cut hours off the bill.Thank ya so much sweetie nice of ya to take time out of ur day for me.

No problem,glad to help.but $100 a hour,I would do the job for $50 .
