1994 Buck P/Ave Runs in reverse Not drive

ASAP. One day i was driving and came to a stop sign. I was going to take off, but the buick would not move. I put it in reverse and it ran like it was fine. Then I tried 3rd and 2nd gear. Still nothing. But i put it in 1st and it took off. So then i shifted all the way up in Drive, and it ran like there was nothing wrong till I came to another stop sign, and had to do it all over again. I dont think its the transmision itself. I been thinking its mabe the vacuum modulator, the linkage. But im not quit sure. If someone has any sugestions let please let me know.

If it was a modulator it would go into low but it would be screaming when it shifted into second and third. The modulator lets the trans shift without head jerking shifts and when unhooked the shift point is way up in the rpms before it shifts.Buicks are hard to beat when it comes to lasting. I do believe in my opinion i would replace the trans. Hope i helped a little God Bless you Greg

First thing is to check transmission fluid level, if level OK and no leaks, i am afraid you have a transmission repair,rebuild or replacement to be done, reverse drum is a common problem on some of the GM transmissions

Power seat motor


Fron first principles, the reverse movement of the motor is caused by reversing power polarity to the motor. If he motor runs in one direction and not the other then it isthe switch. It is not conecting power to the reverse contact. Check.replace switch.
