If your 1997won't go into reverse, there may be a problem with your transmission. You can try checking your levels, but you need to take it to a mechanic.
For the Reverse problem, you could have low transmission fluid, or a bad transmission. For starting in drive, just about every modern car will not start when the transmission is in gear. They will only start in Park or Neutral. This is a safety feature to prevent the car from taking off into someone or something when started.
This can be due to a bad headlight switch. If it goes bad, most of the time you have no dash lights or headlights
