does the shifter move just the car does not change gears? most likely a bad cable. You can research and see they make a very good kit to repair it for about 30$ or you can buy a 200 used cable that will fail about the time you get in installed . If it failed at the rear the new bushing kit is not that hard to install. take it to a transmission shop to repair not the dealer and save 4-500$ they are familiar with this repair you can manually take the car out of gear from under the back if you are going to have it towed

so you did not answer if the shifter moves or you are having problem with the shifter itself. That will require a new lock out switch or could just be the brake switch that shows the shifter you have the brake on. a couple thousand and I am sure the dealer will find something.
