Hey guys. So I have a transmission problem. Everything starts up great. But when I go to shift the car from park to drive. Nothing happens. But the car starts to go forward because of an incline. Then I'll try to shift into reverse. Still nothing but starts to make a scratching sound. Then I'll shift into park and the noice increases badly and continues until I turn the car off. And even when I turn the car off and it's shifted into park. The car will continue to roll if pushed. Until I put the emergency break on. Any ideas what it could be? Do I need a whole new tranny?

Couple of scenarios ...
Transmission actually is in neutral and the shifter is not moving the cable or the cable is disconnected. What year is the car and what transmission is in it (5-spd or 8-spd)?
Propeller shaft (driveshaft) is disconnected and so the transmission and differential are not connected.

I'm having a similar problem with my 2019 Charger GT. It only happens in the morning, after sitting all night, and is not constant. The Car starts up normally. I wait about 30 secs for the Engine to circulate fluids. I press the Brake pedal then shift my Automatic 8-spd into Drive. When I release the Brake, there's no movement. A slight pressing of the accelerator confirms the Transmission is in Neutral. I press the Brake pedal again, shift the Transmission up to Park then shift it back down to Drive then release the Brake. Immediately, the Car starts to move because the Transmission is now in Drive. I have 32K miles on my Car. And, this problem is intermittent, not happening every morning. I'm considering contacting my local Dodge Dealer to have it at least looked at and recorded in their System in case it becomes worse but past the normal 36K Warranty.

Any thoughts and recommendations?

Good idea to register the problem with the dealership while the car is still under warranty. The problem may be the E-Shifter located in the floor console. The E-Shifter is an electronic switch/module using CAN Bus messages to communicate with the transmission. (CAN = controller area network). You can plug a scanner into the car's OBD2 port and see if any pending codes are logged.
