2005 Grand Am stuck in park

My 2005 Grand Am is stuck in park. It has been difficult to shift for the past day or two, but today it just won't budge. Putting the car in accessory and trying to shift from there doesn't work either. What might be wrong?

It is one of three possibilities:

The transmission itself.......

The cable is bad.....

Or it's the shifter/BTSI solenoid.....

Does the shifter move?

If it does move does the cable move?

If the cable does move, does it move the shift lever on the tranny?

Good morning katie0299,

While I can't assist with any technical diagnoses over the internet, if you have questions about warranty/recall items, or would like assistance in working with a dealership, please let me know.
