Okay, then if I understand, regardless of the gear selected, the indicator is incorrect or not working. That would lead me to believe the range sensor itself has failed or you are no longer
Here are directions for replacing the range sensor. Now, before you just replace it, have a helper shift through the gears so you can confirm the linkage cable is connected and moving the shift lever. Also, make sure nothing is disconnected as far as the wiring.
Here are the directions. The attached pictures correlate with the directions.
