Can installing a fan belt incorrectly effect the shift gear
I was told that there are cracks on the belt that needs to be replaced. I jad them replace it only to find out later that when I shift the gear to reverse, it won't go, I have to put it on nuetral to have it reverse. Do you think what they did, effected this? Please help

I think they're messing with you,Fan belt has nothing to do with your transmission linkage,something got loosened up and is out of adjustment, or your cable is broke that operates the indicator .Take it to a different shop hopefully far away from the other guys.

old post, , M/t box. (built many)
jumps out of 1st gear.
bad shift linkage.? ever try shift it with no shift lever. to prove that? (ask)
bad 1'st gear dogs. !
bad bearing near 1st gear, causing it to bounce and jump out.
bad synchro, blocker, hub that dogs to 1st.
shift rail dentent balls failing , springs on balls, or plug fell out.
the blocker and dogs, hold the gear,
the box is constant mesh box, so gears never shift.
on the dogs lock up . (and effects a shift)
if you need a photo of that action or video that too is easy.
1st gear has the gross effect of putting huge gear spreading actions
from top 1st gear to bottom cluster, they want to spread.
so any bearings that can allow that, there, will cause 1st to fail.
did the original pcm have thee missing pin, they may not be missing they may be left out in engineering, as far as the trans not shifting, was the pcm reprogramed because if you just installed out of a box it unlikly that it will shift
The only situation a snapped belt would have an effect on an auto-box, would be if it were driving a manual (non electric) radiator cooling fan, snapped, and were then unable to cool the radiator and autobox oil radiator. I doubt very much this is your setup though, so no. Your belts wouldn't have an effect on your gearbox. Your drive belts would typically drive any or all of the following:
1) Alternator 2) Power steering pump 3) Water pump 4) A.C. compressor
Wow $151.99 even if they did changed the belt, that seams a bit to high. Yes there right though the belt can look oil after a few days and a few miles of driving, most places give you the old belt and ask you what you'ld like done with it such as to keep it in your trunk just in case of an emergency that you break a belt. The other thing you can look is on the inside of the belt where the ribs are and see if there are a lot of cracks and if the belt is hard and not soft. Old belt's over a year get's hard and crack lines on the inside. Good luck and most places like Auto Zone will help change the belt's for you with no extra charge when you buy it there. Good luck
The throttle position switch has some effect on shifting but should effect both hot and cold. It is normal for Toyota vehicles to lock out the overdrive upshift (3rd to 4th gears) until coolant temperature reaches approx 180 degrees f.
