Check your gear linkages that nothing has slipped. I had an old 3 speed van years ago and couldn't get reverse. Thought that the gearbox had gone but just about to remove gear box when I found a stone chipping off the road jammed in the linkage mechanism stopping reverse selection.

Why does my car make a grrrr noise when I back it up?

The grrr noise you hear should be more like a whiring, this is because the reverse gear is a straight cut gear, while all the other gears are helical ( 1st ,2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th) when two straight cut gears meet there is more noise present due to the way the gears connect, as the reverse gear uses several small gears to change a clockwise motion into a anti-clockwise motion.

It depends on the make and model. Some have a toe shifter like a motorcycle that is operated with the left foot. Other models have buttons on the handle bar that shifts gears electrically. Still other, newer ones are shiftless. You put it in high, low or reverse, and no shifting is required.

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
