My shifter moves, yet the truck stays in Park. How do I fix this?

The truck starts fine, but it will allow me to move the shifter even though it remains in Park.

Good afternoon. I would guess that the shift cable is broken. On the left side of the transmission (under the truck, under the drivers seat area) is where the shift cable attaches to the transmission. If you have a helper move the shifter through the gears while you look at the shift linkage on the side of the transmission (where tha shift cable attaches). If the linkage is not moving, more than likely you have a broken shift cable.
