When shift in reverse car will not go. when its in neutral car is in drive. Car drives normal in neutral. About a month ago I pulled the car from New York to Indianapolis, the shift was in neutral but the battery was not disconnected. When I got to Indy and drove the car, couldn't get it in reverse and in "D" car wouldn't step up. Then I found out that neutral now was actually drive.

Ever notice that while driving that the car hesitates or refuses to go into gear? ... For automatic transmissions, you might notice that when shifting into drive or park ....Neutral and park gears no problem, but drive, 1st, 2nd and reverse engages ...
Have the oil changed and the filter checked . I have a Mitsubishi lancer and it is in good nick but If I apply power before the shift happens it chirps the tyres . have the bands and clutch pack adjusted Run fault codes to check for faulty solenoids and servos.

It could be a sign of bad transmission solenoid. If so, your vehicle has trouble shifting into drive or reverse.

With a bad transmission solenoid, the vehicle could have a delay of a few seconds, or even take several minutes to warm up and operate properly. During this delay, the vehicle will act similar to how it behaves in neutral. It won't stay in park, and when you press the gas pedal, the vehicle will make an engine revving noise but not move.
A delay of more than a second in shifting from
the neutral to drive or reverse gear, could mean that there is a problem
with the transmission. If on changing from a neutral or park position
to the drive or reverse gear, the car does not immediately catch the
gear and move forward or backward, then it could mean a problem in the
transmission. If you change gears, and you hear a sudden clunk or sudden
jolt or shudder, then the shifting is not smooth and there could be a
problem with the gearbox. If the engine rpm keeps increasing but there
is no increase in the speed, then it could be a sign of the transmission
slipping.Most automatic transmission systems, nowadays, have a check
engine light or an OD light, which flashes if there is a problem with
