If the car will not shift after engaging the clutch and trying to move the stick, take a look at the fluid to make sure that it is at the right level. Other causes include using the incorrect thickness (type) of fluid and the clutch linkage or shift cables needing adjustment. The source of the problem could also be the vehicle’s computer system. If you’ve already inspected the fluid, you can try resetting it. To do this, detach the battery and let it stand for thirty minutes. Then, reattach and allow the system to reset itself. This usually takes around thirty minutes. If this doesn’t work either, then it’s time to take it to a mechanic.

You mention the clutch and the stick.mits an automatic. I would normally step on the brake, and then shift the lever to either drive or reverse.

My apologies. I assumed you had a standard since I have never heard of this issue with an automatic transmission. Bottom line, sounds like you better get your vehicle to a transmission shop asap before more damage is caused.
