It sounds like something mechanical has broken inside your transmission or shifter assembly. In order to determine what has broken it is likely that the transmission will need to be removed from the vehicle and disassembled. Once the transmission has been disassembled, it should be quite obvious to the qualified professional what has happened. Once the broken part has been verified, it can be replaced as the transmission is going back together and the issue should be resolved.
