Call your local GM dealer (or go online) and check for recalls or campains on your vehicle cocerning this problem.
If the SHIFTER will not go to the reverse position check for an obstruction in the shifter linkage from where the steering shaft exits the cab down along the firewall to the frame where there is some type of bell crank that changes the back and forth movement of the shifter linkage to rotation force connected to the side of the transmission; if there's no reason for the linkage to be bining your next stop is at a reputable tranny shop. Call the BBB and ask.
pretty vague, could be worn linkage in your gear box that pushes the switch.
i don't know when this question was posted but to answer your question more than likely your planetary gear is messed up. The planetary gear is that part of the transmission that take the single direction "clockwise" movement of the engine and convert it to "counter clockwise" motion
Your gear linkage is offset!! Or you are on a steep down hill
You need to lift the collar on the gear stick to engage reverse gear
It is simply indicating that it is in gear.
Quite possibly a worn second gear clutch pack.
check your cross member on the gear selector it sometimes pops off
no but you can by a kit on eBay for a reverse gear
Its not in reverse gear.
The reverse gear is the strongest.
Low fluid, shifter malfunction, electrical malfunction, internal mechanical malfunction.
a bad driver?? Seriously, i could be the ECU
The reverse gear linkage would be attached to the transmission, not the transfer case.
Most motorcycles (with the notable exception of Honda Gold Wings) don't have reverse gear.
Yes, the larger models have reverse gear, those produced after 2005.
The linkage could be bad.
I WOULD SAY AS LONG AS THE GEAR RATIO IS THE SAME YOU COULD GO WITH 1996- 1999 FROM A TAHOE OR YUKON BUT IF YOU GET ONE FROM A PICK-UP TRUCK WOULD PROBABLY BE FROM 1996- 1998.
The lift and pull reverse gear is found in cars like the Chevrolet Optra. To shift on to reverse, lift the ring below the gear knob and shift on to 1st gear like you would always do, but with the ring being held.
Use an 80-90wt gear oil
Shift linkages not put in the correct spots.
Most motorcycles, personal watercraft and airplanes are usually lacking a reverse gear.
It is the transmission gear selector. P = Park R = Reverse N = Neutral D = Drive 3 = Third Gear 2 = Second Gear L = Low Gear or First Gear Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive, Third Gear, Second Gear, Low Gear
Can't remember if mine would go into second, but I did have an issue with not going into reverse. The reverse gear shaft/hub was fractured inside the transmission. Had to do a complete rebuild. GM, upgraded the shaft to strenghten this because of this failure. Hope this helps, Mark
