If you have the center council shifter, there is a lock over ride button inside the body of the council. It's located on the right hand side of the shifter and about the location of where the shifter is in Neutral. You can ge to it with a small screw driver and push it in. With the button pushed in, you can shift. There is a wire that connects the shifter to the braking system that may be broke. Very tight tolerence.
