Why does my reverse just grind when i shift in to reverse?

This is a manual transmission car, I presume. If it's an auto, you have a big problem! Grinding could mean that something inside the transmission is failing. Or it could mean that your transmission fluid is low. OR, it could mean that your clutch is worn or is out of adjustment. Grinding usually means that the clutch is not disengaging properly when you push the clutch pedal, or perhaps, a synchronizer has failed. Whatever the case, If I were you, I'd get the car to my mechanic and have her looked at.

Try shifting from Park to Neutral to Park and if the car starts, you have aproblem with thepark/neutral safety switch. It may be failing or just need adjusting. This is a part found on all cars with automatic transmissions. It prevents the starter from engaging if the transmission is in any gear other than 'Park' or 'Neutral'. It also turns on the back-up lights when the transmission is shifted into "reverse". It can get out of adjustment or fail.
