This is a safety interlock circuit, check all your fuses first. You can get the shifter to move if you read in your owners manual the precedure to by pass this lock.

I have an 03 Chevy trailblazer and it feels like the shifter which is the middle not on steering shifter is super easy to move but doesn't shift into any gear at all


Hi Charles:
I'd be thinking that the linkage may be disconnected.
Work Safe!! Block the tires so it can't roll. Slide under and look at the transmission and the shift linkages. Have a helper move the gearshift lever and see what moves and try to figure out if there is a rod that is not connected to a shift lever.

The end of the shift cable has broken, there is a plastic ring at the transmission end of the cable that breaks. You will need to have it towed to the mechanic.
