The most common reason for your problem is going to be in your linkage from your gear shifter to the transmission it is connected to your transmission via a plastic locking plate with serrated teeth and if they are not perfectly matched you will have problems such as nutral will be drive drive will be second gear or no response at all

Cannot going in reverse at all

According to Allison on " If you cannot go in Reverse but can go forward it is your transmission. It could be the synchroniser, the gear itself or part of the actuating system, but if it's inside the transmission (not linkage on the outside) it's sometimes easier to replace than take apart, diagnose and rebuild. Not all mechanics feel comfortable working on transmissions, too, so you may want to have a specialist look at it before you pay anyone anything." Usually you are looking at having to rebuild your transmission. Sorry.

When I install BMW ICOM software in English, it works well, but when I choose Spanish, it display errors.

Except English, German and Chinese, if you install BMW ICOM in the other language, you will get the same errors.

My 1991 735il bmw will not reverse, what can i do to solve this problem

You will more than likely need to remove the transmission from the car and have it rebuilt. Since this is a guess (based on 40 years) on my part have it taken to a transmission repair shop bob and have them confirm the guess is right, i'm sure it is.

No reverse 2000 bmw 323i

i think you should speak to a transmission place local.
i think your clutch drum is faulty and yes it would need a replace.
i know transmission people will look at it for free, if its a good place they will know as must of had this type of box in before.
i get this on other makes and yes it it finished but every make of box is different.

Reverse gone in BMW 328i


I'm assuming you have an auto transmission, if you do, then if you are lucky changing your transmission oil might do the trick.

If you want to try this, then you simply need to change your transmission oil drive the car for a few hundred miles and change the oil again, this has in some cases solved the problem but its not guranteed.
