Default PT no start

My mom owns an 2001 pt crusier automatic it has a new starter I installed 6months ago along with battery. The past couple of weeke the shifter has been tight. now its loose like it is broke and wont start. I was not driving but I know the last gear it was in was reverse, I think it may be stuck in reverse. what kind of shift linkage dose it have cable or mechanical?

Also, shifter bushings are known to go bad and make shifting damn near impossible.
