I think the problem is not the pcm, also check the transfer (if your car is 4x4) it have a chain and components that make this problem

91 Nissan truck 5 speed transmission location for reverse lockout

I didn't find a reverse lockout by that terminology in the Haynes manual, but there is a reverse check sleeve mounted on the left side of the transmission just forward of the gearshift assembly. It is covered by an oval shaped cover held in place with two bolts.

What's your problem?chevy suburban wont reverse its a 454

You will probably need a transmission or have yours rebuild. Probably broken internal component that engages reverse gear.

My 2003 envoy will not engage reverse slips into second gear and will not engage overdrive.. It gave no warning signs of transmission failure.. What is the problem??

It could be a bad transmission sensor, but the check engine light must be on, if it's this way take it to an speciallist to connect the scanner and this will tell you what is wrong with the transmission.

I have a 1965 Mustang Fastback, I am restoring it through my school. Quite a few years back one of the students "rebuilt" the transmission, I beleive it is stock. We are close to having the car...

I am assuming that you have a 4-speed manual transmission?
If the shifter mechanism had a lockout built into it, then you will have to repair it or figure out some way to disable it before you will be able to shift the transmission into reverse gear.
Another option would be to replace the shifter mechanism entirely.
