The shift censor could be going bad. There may also be a problem
with the transmission linkage which would cause this problem.
You need to lift the collar on the gear stick to engage reverse gear
has a full charge won't go forward or reverse
My 2001 hyundai accent has no reverse
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.
Are you in neutral ? No in reverse.
have the reverse safety switch checked if this is not working it will stop reverse being engaged this is done so as not to engage reverse by mistake
Had that many cars i can't really remember but you either have to push gearstick down then into reverse or pull gearstick knob up to engage reverse. Defo one or the other :)
It is a safety feature. You must pull in the left brake lever fully to engage reverse, if you try to put it into reverse without doing so, the engine will kill.
So that they can engage the archaic side of language
Bang depending on the vehicle, you will ruin the transmission.
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?
when parking heading downhill, point the front wheels towards the curb. I engage the hand brakes and also engage the reverse gear. I found it is very effective.
Shift it into either 4H or 4L, and sometimes, after going into 4X4, you need to put the car in reverse for a few feet to engage it.
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.
1998 ford explorer transmission reverse won't engage, acts like it is in neutral.
