Electrical - check voltage to "reverse" selonid.

With my knowledge on Nissans, it could also be a transmission problem. If it is a 5-speed, it is more than likely the tranny. Reverse is the gear that goes out first most of the time

What is the fastest a car has gone in reverse?

The Nissan Leaf is the fastest car in reverse. For safety purposes, a stock Nissan Leaf is electronically limited in how fast it can go in reverse. With the limit removed, it has gone about 55 miles/hour in reverse and it set the world record for fastest car in reverse. Most cars are physically limited in how fast they can go in reverse by the transmission, as reverse is roughly equivalent to first gear. The Nissan Leaf has no transmission, instead it has a motor that can put out high torque over a wide range of speeds, making a transmission unnecessary.
