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.
probly hav a linkage problem--try ajustin it at trans under the car--u need a repair manual=partstore haz them--also displays maintenance for all area of vehicle--put jackstands under car cause a jack alone will fall
It could be a sign of bad transmission solenoid. If so, your vehicle has trouble shifting into drive or reverse. Normally, when you start your car, you're able to shift into drive or reverse right away. 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.
Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.
