Do you mean when you put it in drive the car does nothing, if that is what you mean to say then you only have one thing wrong that causes this, the transmission has failed (this assumes the fluid is not really low)

It may be a faulty speedometer with a short inside, or a short on speedometer wirings or connector.

Whenever car vibration cause the wiring to short, there you lose speedometer and trans functionality.

You need to access the speedometer connector and wirings to
instrument panel to fix this.
