The reverse is the first thing to go out in your transmition. Check trani fluid while car is hot and idling in park on level surface if needed add trani fluid. If problem persists sometimes replacing the transmision screen may enable the reverse usually and new trani is needed.

Could be the brake switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
That circuit would need to be tested.

I can't shift into reverse. All other 5 gears are


My VW is not shifting into reverse at all; I think a certain person was driving and mistakenly pressed the gear shifter down for all gears--reverse is the only gear you press the shifter down first in. Doesn't grind, 1 2 3 and 4 work but no reverse no reverse lights.
