Welcome to the forums. First, make sure you have a good battery and make sure it's fully charged, as a bad or low battery can cause shifting problems.

When you first turn the key on, does the gear position indicator blink? If so, count the number of blinks, as this is a trouble code.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

It’s most likely the angle sensor that’s going bad. It’s located on the front of the motor, with a metal shield around it. It happened to me and cost around $50 to replace.

Yeah, could be a bad angle sensor, but I don't know why it isn't throwing a code, though. Could also be a weak shift motor. Go to the link below and download the service manual and it will show you how to troubleshoot the ES components.
