There is a problem with the gearshift.
Gear Shifters are a mechanical component that are used every time the vehicle is driven. Due to this, they are much more susceptible to failure. Firstly, the linkage is attached to the shifter which is connected to the transmission gear selector. This can get worn down, loosened, bound up, or even break. On some vehicles there is a lock on the gear selector that disables the shifter from moving until you depress the brake pedal. This lock can malfunction, even with the brake pressed in the shifter with no movement. A proper inspection of your shifters should be carried out by a qualified technician in order to get your issue fixed.
