Question: What could be the reason the vehicle will not shift into any fwd gear?

I backed out of the garage and went to put the vehicle into drive but it would not shift into any fwd gear. There is clicking noise heard near the shifter when the brake pedal is depressed. Does the same thing without engine running.

Lots of things can cause abnormal shifting. You'll have to have a transmission shop diagnose whether it's in the transmission itself, or if the transmission is reacting to a sensor giving it poor data.

Your vehicle looks like it’s still under warranty. I would recommend taking it in and having the dealer look at it.

Sounds like it is an electrical issue since you hear clicking, but you'll need a shop to look at it to be sure.
