No reverse with normal forward engagement is a sign of a failed transmission.

SOURCE: 1994 honda transmission?

Honda uses internally in the transmission,a shift fork,very much like a manual trans,to change from Forward to Reverse,and vice versa.It is likely this fork isn''t moving.The best thing to do is pull trouble codes out of the car,as a malfunctioning sensor or solenoid (they are mounted on the outside of the trans) could cause a problem.Your year Honda is a manual code read,and their is a procedure to follow to get the codes out of the car.Passenger side front kick panel has to be removed,a blue 2 wire connector located,then a jumper wire is used to short the connector out.Insert the jumper wire,then turn the ignition key to the on position,engine off.This puts the car into diagnostic mode.The "S" light,or gear indicator light on the dash will flash a series of numbers,and these are your codes.You have to write down the number of flashes.For example.....2 flashes,followed by 4 flashes would be a code 24.When the codes are pulled,they then have to be looked up on a chart..then the code is diagnosed and repaired.The problem could still be internal,but external causes have to be addressed first.

SOURCE: My reverse lights are staying on even when car is in drive

Probably faulty reverse/neutral switch at tranny. Should be approx $20- $25 for switch, and I'm guessing 1/2 hr lab to change. Cleaning contact may help, worth a try, but doubtful.

The car has an automatic transmission and all of a sudden i had no reverse had no slipping or nothing the drive gears work fine no slipping grinding nothing shifts through all gears just fine


It may just need servicing/adjusting.

Your reverse gear is actually first gear ... when you select reverse another 'cog' fits into the toothed wheels to change the direction of first gear ... to give you reverse...

It may be a sticky valve or just a bit of adjustment (workshop job..) that is required.

What you can try ..

Start the car ... move the lever through all the positions several times (foot on brake..). Keep your foot on the brake and then put it in reverse and rev the car. Hard!

Try doing it several times.

An auto transmission works on valves opening and closing. Reverse gear - in comparison with the forward gears - is seldom used. The reverse valve can 'stick'. Try forcing it to open ... frighten it ... but keep your foot on the brake...

Won't go back


If your vehicle is fitted with automatic gear box sounds that you are going to loose the transmission.For not going on reverse like having locked wheels,I believe looks like the brake bands in the gear box are the reason and the minimal power you have for forward drive are the clutches which are slipping. Visit an experts shop and please do not force it.

Either the clutch or torque converter, most likely the torque converter, also check the gearbox fluid level and slave cylinder.

Nissan pulsar 1988 wont go into gear I can put the gear stick in the right gear but does nothing wont reverse or drive, its automatic and has a reconditioned engine in it


try checking your transmission oil (i had the same problem but after $30 it was fixed) it might had drained out. if your transmission oil is fine then consult a mechanic preferebly an automatic transmission specialist. may be your transmission needs a rebuild.
