My transmission will not change into drive from second. The rear bumped 2 times the day before it happened. Changing it manually does not help and it never slipped or anything. it just stopped working. Could it be some sort of relay?

    your car may be stuck in a limp in mode where it won't shift out of direct drive. try disconnecting your battery to clear codes & checking the fluid level, if that doesn't change anything then you are likely going to have to take it in for a real diagnosis, if these transmissions don't get the inputs they want then they will often default to limp in mode which will only shift into the gears you need to get you home
