Default Sudden loss of power to wheels

I have a '99 Camry. Today on the way to work I lost all power to wheels. Engine runs fine. No drive in any gear. Park doesn't hold wheels from turning. Any thoughts/ideas?

If no Park when the gear selector is in Park. Check for a broken gear selector cable.

Look under the hood for a push/pull cable going to the radiator side of the trans. Follow the cable to the trans where there is a shift lever connected to the push/pull cable.

Have someone move the gear selector between gears selections while you watch the lever. It should move (rotate) with the gear selector movement. If not the cable is broken.
