    The best practice to shift a car with auto transmission is to use a breakdown vehicle if available in your area, they will pull the car onto the truck with gear in N position and will drop the car at any service center.
    we should be proud of safe driving.

    Connect a scanner it should tell you the problem. Check 12V battery.

    the only way to tow it is to put the front wheels on a dolly or raise the wheels off the ground.
