Default 2005 Ion sedan - only reverse - no forward gears

A family friend had his 2005 Ion sedan with an automatic towed to my shop because suddenly it lost all forward gears. If you put it into reverse it will engage properly and back up but if you put it in any of the forward gear locations absolutely nothing happens. I did not notice if it had a check engine codes but tomorrow I will put my OTC Nemisys on it and see what it shows. I did not check tranny fluid level because it was able to find reverse. Anyone experienced a problem like this?

There are a couple common issues with the 4T40E transmission that cause the forward gears not to function. Read about them here.
