Assuming this is an automatic transmission, odds are you have lost a band in your transmission, this will require a rebuild, you may also notice it will fail to shift into high gear as well?

I had same problem on my 2002 explorer. Its either the computer module, or the electric solenoid on the transfer case. In my case it was both. The computer module I had done twice in 14 months.

You know,i had kind of the same problem with my 2000 f150,just incase you didnt check this,look under the dash at the bottom of the steering column,there is a bracket that bolts on with 2 torque bolts at ( t-25 or t-30) the shift cable connects to that bracket and when it loosens up it wont go into park or if loose enough it may not shift to reverse either.An easy way to tell if its loose is if the shift lever feels loose or real easy to move.Also at the transmission where the shift cable connects there is a plastic holder with groves on it for adjustment,dont try adjusting it but inspect it if its loose or broken,if you try adjusting it then its tough to get it back where it needs to be for all the gears to work with the shift indicator tab,about it not starting,that may have to do with the safety neutral switch on the transmission,but double check the linkage to make sure its really tight before worrying about that switch,im not always on line these days but i will help more when i can.Good luck

Testimonial: "nov2771 advised with the 2 torque bolts at (t-25 or t-30) was right on the money. The bolts were loose...However, upon further investing I noticed that on the top of the column there is a notch that goes into a slot right before the two (2) torque bolts...this gear is what i believe prevents the car from going into the parking and prevents the key from being removed at the ignition. The shift lever moves freely...but does not move the cable and gears at the transmission.... "
Chances are is that the torque converter needs to be replaced. However, the transmssion on this vehicle are only serviceable by transmision shops. No regular mechanic will open up the transmission. When the torque converter fails (clutch and plates shutters to small pieces) the debri flows in the transmision thereby potentially destroying the gears and/or clogging the filter and pump. Go straight to a reputable transmission shop and let them correctly diagnose the transmission.
