I got mine fixed. Had to change the cable and the whole shifter assembly. It wasnt too bad in price, less then $200 total, and my son-in-law changed it in about 1/2 hr in the driveway. Just go to the dealer and get the parts break down for that area and get the cable and chances are, you will need the assembly too.

Car is in limp in mode unless you have the tools to work on automatic transmission you will need to take it to a transmission shop. Of course you can check oil level but I suspect you have other issues.

SOURCE: This past weekend I was
Your 4WD system is computer controlled & there is a failure code set
in the TCCM (transfer case control module).This can be verified with
the use of a scan tool that will access the TCCM system find wiring
problems (grounds,shorted circuits) & control modules to be at
fault. Test these circuits wit a 12 volt test lamp or volt meter.
Additionally, other easiest way to check another posibilitie is to remove the actuator, take a screw driver and stick it in the opening, you should feel spring pressure. Push in on the screwdriver, there is a slider/blocking ring assembly and fork internal in the housing that the actuator pushes on.What I want you to do is manually engage it ,or at least try to.
While holding pressure against the slider with the screwdriver turn the front driveshaft , this should engage the front diff. If it does not turn the cv axles then we have just confirmed the problem is internal.
I have seen alot of problems with these differentials. There are several washers and selective shims that go bad, also the diff shaft has a snub on the end of it what happens is that breaks and the washer falls down into the case then jams in between the slider. This does not allow the fork to travel therfore not engaging the 4X4.

have your transmission fluid drained and replaced. after replacing the fluid, try to move the gear shifter, if still does not work, have your transmission checked by a transmission mechanic for detailed diagnosis

Tips for a great answer:
car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be
transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.
