The brake lockout linkage is out of adjustment. It needs to be adjusted so that the shifter will operate. Hope this helps;

you need a used trans, or a rebuild, but dont let a rebuilder fill you full of ****, all you need is the reverse drum, and possibly some clutches. the teeth on the reverse drum strip off, and thats when you lose reverse.

the transmission is in limp mode, when a problem is seen by the on board computer system like to low line pressure in the transmission the computer puts the unit in limp mode which is 2nd gear and reverse only. this is not good news. you need to have the codes pulled to see what caused the ECM to do this.
