SOURCE: gear shift
there is a shift lock over ride button located just to the left of the shifter u have to remove a small piece of plastic to pop out then push a ball point pen through the hole and push down this will unlock the shifter. check to see if your brake kights are working as these cars have a issue with the brake switches which will cause this problem if there is no brake lights replace the brake light switch

replace the brake pedal switch, it is mounted in front of the brke pedal, this is what makes the silanoid work, if it is not working the silanoid will not.

This a repair for a transmission shop. Sounds like the pumps are bad inside the transmission. Thats the worst option I have.
It also can be a poor shift linkage adjustment. And the last solution can be the speed module that tell the transmission when to shift.
Goodluck! I hope this helps!
