Why do the reverse lights remain lit when the ignition is switched on and the suv is running. This happens in all gears. I removed the center console to look for the reverse light switch, and it seem

You may be looking in the wrong place. It is on the transmission. The switch must be pretty wimpy because it doesn't directly drive the reverse lights, but connects to a reverse light relay in the smart junction box. The relay could be stuck. Unplug the two wire connector at the transmission then turn the key to RUN and see if the reverse lights are still on. If they are on then the relay is stuck and needs to be replaced. If they are not on then the switch in the transmission is bad.

I changed the slave cylinder on my clutch of my TATA 207 and now I cant get any gears, It is stuck in reverse gear. the gears where perfect befor I chnnged the clutch slave cylinder ??

Either the new slave cylinder is faulty or you need to bleed it. Sounds like you aren't getting enough clutch release to get the gears to change. You cant hurt the gears by doing anything to the outside components of the tranny.

Stuck in reverse...broken gear cable?

The two items in question are the linkage (center console or column shift) and the neutral safety switch.
Check the reverse light to see is it on.
Inspect and tighten the neutral safety switch mounting bolts.
The center plastic (white gear) is worn.
Replace this switch will fix the problem.

Car is stuck in Reverse

It sounds like a bad shift indicator switch on the shifter. Kind of a pain in the *SS to get to those console's get real brittle.

Hope you get it in gear!!!

4.2l. Why is shifter stuck?

With the car started press on the brake pedal. Listen carefully for a "Click" sound coming from under the gear shift cover. If you do not hear one you will need to test the brake pedal switch, if you hear a click then most likely the lock somehow became disconnected from the solenoid. Remove the shifter cover and the assemble is can be seen for troubleshooting and repair.

My 2002 nissan sentra is stuck in park.. when i press the brakes, the gear shifter won't go into reverse or drive until after a few tries. once it gets into reverse or drive it's fine. the only problem is...

You can try avoiding to place the car in PARK,when you stop the car just leave it in neutral and secure it with the handbrake.Inside the car under the gear stick should be a switch which suppose to keep the gearbox in park .When you push the break pedal it turns that switch on so you can place the car in to gear.Removing this switch can fix your problem ,but it is unsafe.The replacement of this part cant be too expensive.
