It's a matter of replacing the reverse position swith in the transmission. This switch tells the computer wheter it's in neutral, or reverse and when in reverse it triggers the reverse lights.
The transmission may not shift or engage in forward or reverse until the car warmed up for a few reasons. Two examples of why the transmission will not engage is low or no fluid levels or a leak.
My 2001 hyundai accent has no reverse
the synchros could be out in the transmission where it won't engage reverse. i believe that the check engine light may activate if there is a transmission issue. unfortunately, you will have to take it in for diagnosis.
Bang depending on the vehicle, you will ruin the transmission.
It sounds like you need a new transmission. I had the same problem but I replaced the transmission and decided to trade it in.
1998 ford explorer transmission reverse won't engage, acts like it is in neutral.
Is the car auto or manual? check fluidlevels first, have you noticed any burning smells prior to problem? Does it not engage in all gears including reverse?
Your Transmission may need service, rebuilt. Try any major local transmission place. For example, AAMCO, exc.
The shift censor could be going bad. There may also be a problem with the transmission linkage which would cause this problem.
The torque converter and clutch are the point where the engine and the transmission engage.
If the transmission is slipping or shifting badly it COULD be a sign of a valve body failure. If the transmission will not engage reverse or any of the forward gears, it COULD be a sign of a valve body failure.
your geers in your tranny are waring down and will cause the transmission to slip or not go into gear
You need to lift the collar on the gear stick to engage reverse gear
The snap ring broke off the D-G clutch drum inside the automatic transmission which operates reverse gear. The pistons in the clutch pack can not grab on to the drum to engage into gear. Transmission will need to be rebuilt with a new thicker D-G drum. Cost 3k to 4k.
if you feel or hear it engage when put in reverse but will not move or even roll down the drive way. But rolls fine in neutral. a clutch pack is engaged that should not be.
sounds like transmission problem it could be the lever but likely that the teeth on the gear for forward is strip and wont engage...take it to mechanic or take the crankcase transmission case off and play with the gear back and forth to see what its supposed to engage and look at the gear replace if needed...trust me its worth it to do it youself and its pretty easy..just takes some time prolly an 1.5hour!!
has a full charge won't go forward or reverse
Check your fluid level, it's critical. Make sure the fluid's a nice red colour and not brown and smells burnt.
Are you in neutral ? No in reverse.
take it to the shop!
Bad transmission rebuilder
transmission won't engage when you push the button on john deer 155c automatic
I am facing the same exact problem with my Nissan Altima 2000. Did you find the solution?
Does the transmission engage when you shift it into drive?
To engage or disengage the engine from the transmission.
