No reverse/forward neutral? WTF?????

I seem to have encountered a strange problem. the other day i went to reverse into my parking spot and i just sat there like a rock put it in neutral and the damn thing took off on me luckly it hit the wall and stopped. any way so i dropped the pan to find copper flakes and some sludge around the magenit . i dont know what the issue is im hoping its a cheap fix it myself project i just need help with where to start. any help is much needed and much appreciated.

The bezel... the plate that is on the shifter that indicates what gear you are in. Sometimes it can move and you think you are in one gear, but are actually in another. It seems to me that would be the issue given the description of the problem.

The only cheap thing to do is check the linkage adjustment.

put the shifter in park.
Remove the linkage from the selector lever on the trans.
Put the trans in park.
Adjust the cable till it pops on without moving the lever.

I've seen this enough to know it's full mechanical failure though.
