If you mean the shifter itself is NOT moveable , it sounds like the brake interlock system is not functioning. Usually there is a fail safe for this system when it fails on a floor shift. There will be a little hole to stick a screw driver into, carefully insert it into it to release the handle to shift. The problem is the brake switch and/or cable that controls the system is malfucntioning.
