2016 Toyota Corolla will shift in to park and reverse and neutral but not drive.

You will have to bare with me this is my mom's car and i cannot get to it but after driving from New York to Missouri and shutting it off when she got to her destination she had no problems when she went out the next day it went into reverse but once she backed out of the drive wlit wouldn't go into drive they noticed the air cleaner was not in place so it was put back properly then it started working until she shut it off then it wouldn't go into drive again. Any idea what this might be?

Check if the brake lights are coming on when you hit the brakes. Some cars us the brake light switch to lock the shifter.
Also there is a little slot next to the shiftier where you are suppose insert a key to unlock the shiftier in an emergency. Check the owners manual.
