might have a brock lock. i would pull the center consol and make sure its working fine, unhook the cable then check it, if it works unhook the cable from the trany and see if the cable is stuck. if not then chaulk the rear wheel and see if you can move the shifter on the trany by hand. you should find your problem in one of these things.

I had the same problem with my 96 t-bird lx. My friend told me that it might be a burned out fuse. I had my doubts but it was worth a shot. Low and behold, the sob was right. Try the fuse.

If you can still move the gearshift through all the gears even though it does not mave the truck move, it is probably you clutch that has gone out. sloppy gearshift, or no noticeable ability to find where the gears are might be you shifting forks or synchro.

Next time it won't start, try turning the key to "Start", then move the gearshift. If it engages when you move the gearshift, it could be the neutral lockout safety switch is either bad or mis-aligned. I found that in my 5 speed it was the starter. everything would lite up just not start, so i push started it and it would start.
