It could possibly be the neutral safety switch on the gear selector, which will only allow the car to start when it's in Park or Neutral.
If you can get a helper it would be useful to know whether the electric gear selector itself under the car is indeed working when the gears are shifted. If so, I'd try starting the car when it's in neutral, then in park, to see if it works in either. If the gears aren't being shifted then there are a number of other things that need to be checked.
