If the vehicle is stuck in a gear then the shift censor is out. The other reason could be that the linkage on the transmission is broken.

Try to have your Neutral Safety switch checked out or your brake switch, It controls the shifter so you cant put it in gear without pressing the brake

2006 altima shifter stuck in park?

This was my solution to my 2006 Nissan Altima being stuck in park.... On the gear panel above the "P". Pop the cap off to reveal a cylinod. If you press down on the cylinoid, it will release the gear out of park. What can cause this is liquid being spilled or sprayed accidentally into that area and causing the cylinoid to stick. It will need to be cleaned or replaced, but at least you can get it to drive to wherever you need to go instead of it having to be towed.
