I just put a new slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder on a 2003 Honda accord 3.0 V6 six speed and you can shift the gears without the clutch pedal pushed in or the car started


that is normal if the gear synchro dogs ( teeth) are in line in the box
problems concerning a clutch are
slashing gears when trying to engage first or reverse with the pedal to the floor ---needs bleeding
slipping when the clutch pedal is released--- slipping clutch from the pressure not being released ---problem in master cylinder
reverse gear is the only gear not synchronised so even with the clutch depressed it is possible sometimes that it will not go into gear unless you let the clutch up to move the gears in the box then attempt to re-engage reverse

My holden viva 2008 manual cannot put into reverse


as the 5th gear and reverse gear are on the same shifter rail the there may be a problem with the selector fork for reverse gear. Undo the bolts that hold the shifter turret to the box and see if the reverse selector moves when you use a lever to move the rail

Why doesnt my car go in reverse the reverse lights go on and it kicks but no movement


if you have an automatic gear box , then it is very possible that you have reverse band is broken inside gear box , , light will come on because switch for reverse lights may be actuated by shift lever not gears .

there is a foward band and reverse band in auto gerabox's so if you are able to drive forward this gearbox will need to be repaired or replaced .

if manual gearbox , you may find a reverse linkage loose , or gears dammaged in gear box .
good luck hope this helps

Transmission wont go in reverse


Auto or manual,,, if auto it could be linkage or the locking button on lever,, or the reverse band has either broken or worn out
If manual box then its either a burred or worn revers gear,, or Selector shaft ball and spring jamed up but only in a 4speed forward gear box or the reverse gear fork pin has come adrift.

Back up lights not working


Hi,
The Reverse lights work on a plunger mechanism, mounted at the reverse gear position of the stick-shift. sometimes actually within the gear-box ( transmission itself )
I,d remove the bulb(s) and ensure the earth connections are good. clean and tight.
You could also try testing to see if you have 12 volts, running through the circuit, with a multi-meter or tester. i,d suggest purchasing a vehicle manual. invaluable tool for any vehicle.

regards mike.

Reversing light dosent always work


Hi ddsnail123,
What you could be dealing with here, is a bad earth connection, or just as likely, a sticking or defective reverse lamp switch ( you'll find that on the gear box. If it's a manual it will have two cables and if it's an auto, it will be on the main gear selector switch)....The other alternative is, that the lamp holders or the connectors may be corroded inside and require cleaning or replacement....
