Generally shifting from reverse to drive, while still rolling, is possible but not recommended. This places a lot of stress on the transmission and other components of the drive train.
are you pressing the brake as you try to shift?
does it shift into reverse and wont drive? if so its your tranny it needs to be replaced
Park, reverse, neutral, Drive and low
Not sure of the question, but if your car is less than 7 yrs old, apply the brake first, then you can move the shift selector.
Sounds like a torque converter lock up solenoid.
my 2002 ford escape sensor is misfiring and it won't shift into drive
Shift it on 2H, then "REVERSE" for about 10 to 15 Feet....
Shift linkage broken or misadjusted?
sounds like the auto transmission has a fault
This is called a J turn. Look it up on youtube for instructions on executing one.

i have a 92 s-10 blazer and it has no reverse Andy ideas?. it will go in to drive and shift in to all the gears..but will no go into reverse? can u help me
Check the fluid level. If the fluid level is OK, put the van in reverse on a parking lot and drive it around in reverse. Then try it to see if it will shift into 2nd. If it does shift then, it may be just a clogged filter. If it still will not shift into 2nd you may have to take it over to Cottman and have them check it out.
Check to make that the brake lights are working - shift interlock is in the same circuit - could ba a bad fuse. You can try turning the key (with engine off) o to the first position (Unlock) shift to neutral to start vehicle and then shift to "Drive or Reverse"
It is quite simple. The wheel probably had little to do with the engine stopping. The cause was probably the changing of gears, ex: drive to reverse, which stalled the engine. This rarely occurs, 1: 100,000, but does happen sometimes. It is not something to usually worry about. This stall was most probably conincidental, caused by the shift.
check the transaxle range switch and positioning....the holes should line up in neutral
If your Mercedes won't shift out of park, you might have an issue with the brake sensor or the brake itself. The brake must be fully depressed in order to shift from park to drive or reverse.
How can you change the light bulb for the gear shift on a 2002 Toyota Camry?
Simply start the vehicle with the shift lever in the Park position. If you wish to go backward place the shift lever in the R location. When you're ready to move forward place the shift lifter in the D position. Only shift from park to reverse or to drive when the vehicle is sitting still.
I am having the same problem on my 94. It will go into drive but that is it.
