SOURCE: No reversing lights

check a couple of things clean the base of your globes and sockets. your switch next to the shifter could be slightly out of adjustment check this by going through the gears to see if they light up that way. failing that check ur switch in the gearbox could be faulty. hope this helps.

SOURCE: C230 k mercesdes auto gear box not changing from "1st"

I think checking the transmission fluid level, and perhaps a fluid change with a filter change would be first step.

However, with only 68K miles on your vehicle, seems like too low of miles for the fluid & filter to be in that bad of shape unless you are driving in extreme dusty conditions, pulling a trailer, or other harsh conditions.

SOURCE: terrano 2 reverse good, drive bad. auto

Automatic transmissions, have brake and clutch bands, these gradually wear. The residue of this wear is picked up by the filter. from time to time, it will require servicing, to clean the filter and adjust the brake and clutch bands and change the fluid at the same time.
I had the torque converter drilled, drain, welded, to get all the fluid out and replaced with synthetic fluid, which handles much higher temperature, and according to a transmission specialist, will last the life of the vehicle. When fluid has changed from red to brown , it is no longer performing to its specification, and will eventually cause unnecessary wear to the transmission. I would suggest to get the transmission serviced by a transmission specialist, rather than a general mechanic, if possible. I have seen owners told a transmission had to be replaced for $1800 (at the brand authorised service agent), when the specialist new it was a common fault for that model and would cost about $70 to fix.

Jimny suzuki not engaging, seems neutral always. What seems to be the problem?

welcome to usa forum, we dont have Jimny here.
but car is kind simular to a vitara.
no year stated, so that makes real accurate answers impossible.
no transmission stated. or engine size

is it a stick or auto trans?
is car 2wd or 4wd?

is the lever stuck in nutural.?
or is the lever working right but the transmission fails in all gears and reverse.
mine has stick and 5 speeds, and reverse so has 6 gears to try.
If an automatic? trans. check the levels. per the operators guide do not guess.
and change its filter, if never done.
if automatic, make sure the lever moves its cable and the other end of cable is still attached to the trans lever. on the box.
they both move same amount, (cable drive does that)
if not the cable is bad, or bits there.

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

Only got second gear in my auto no reverse

Sounds like a solenoid problem, but to fix needs a rebuild on the transmission.

Early morning engage rev gear car not moving for at 3 mins

Have had the transmission serviced lately, fluid and filter? Most auto manufacturers recommend changing the fluid and filter every 30,000 miles. I guess I would start with that, don't rev the engine while your waiting for it to go into gear. There is a good chance that the reverse clutch is partially engaged and if you rev the engine to try to make it go, you will burn that clutch up for sure. Also, park the car in such a manner that you don't need to use reverse, right away in the morning.

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.

When i select reverse gear the engine cuts out, but if i remove a 10amp fuse from the fuse box under the driver's dash it stay's in gear and reverses ok but i lose the indicator's, why is this happening?

you need to check the wires from the shifting lever, when you put it at reverse a wire is caught at the mechanism creating a short circuit that makes it shut off the engine.
