This seems like a serious problem. Hope somebody can help me.
I pulled into my driveway and routinely put car in park and turned off ignition. I get out and car started rolling out of my driveway. I hurry back in and slammed on the brakes. My first thought was I left it in neutral but then realized i wouldn't have been able to turn off the car. I then grabbed my gear shifter and realized it was not engaged at all. Would go up and down without catching. I put the key in to start and it wouldn't. So, my car won't start, the gear shift won't work and won't stay in park. I had to use my emergency brake to get out. Please help!!!
Thanks in advance.

It may be a broken shift cable or linkage, the vehicle wont start because its still in drive at the transmission, you can probably go under and shift it to park manually if needed
