Probably yes to both. When you open the door does it make a noise like a wind-up toy? Does it display anything on the dash cluster when you swap to S or R? Does it make a series of clicking noises that doesn't end when you try to put it into gear? Not going into gear at all could be one of many things, without a code it's hard to tell which. It could be anything from the previous owner spilled a coke on the shift lever and messed up the switches below to the HPU or GCU malfunctioning or a busted line between them, to a fried TCU. Good news is you know neutral works!
