On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced. The switch is just plug and play

SOURCE: Auto gearbox gets stuck in reverse gear.

This is likely a sticking valve in the transmission valve body assembly, try adding a can of Lucas brand transmission additive.

Mechanics advised that gearbox needs replace after diagnostic Of codes . Dash light still on after codes being read , have had ecu replaced 2yrs ago ? What do you think it could be , thanks phil

didnt specify vehicle --generic answer--until repair is made the vehicle will show engine light and have codes --if gearbox is problem for limp mode /until repairs are made or gearbox replaced you will be in limp mode --and as to sensor find out what one it was --start problem may show back up if sensor was problem --and GET a 3rd opinion you have 2 mechanics with different opinions on your problem and i guess they are reading your trouble codes differently

I have a Nissan Serena 2003 model with CVT gearbox. It wount engage 1,2 when moving in low speed, or uphill.when behaving this way, its fails to reverse,or reverse in difficulty.

Have the codes read at Autozone. Check out the wiring to the speed sensor on the output shaft of the gearbox. Be prepared to change the speed sensor itself. Is the speedo functioning? Often when the speed sensor is faulty the speedo dial fails

I was trying to reverse from a down hill position. But putting the shift on reverse didn't work. The car kept driving forward. It beat the out of me cause I was blocking access to a lot of cars behind...

I would be checking the oil level in the gear box as if it is low there may be a oil pressure problem that is not locking up the band and clutch to make reverse work. have a pressure test done on the gearbox to check for internal problems. IT is possible that the oil pick up was out of the oil and the box pump was not working

Reverse lights are not working on Chrysler Grand Voyager 2.3 CRD

There has to be a switch , They do not work from ESP , its either going to be on the gearbox case or connected with the gearshift lever/mechanism.
If this is automatic transmiision, then it would be the inhibitor switch fitted to the selector mechanism.
Hope this helps

Reversing lights not work

sounds like it could just be the reverse sensor located on the acctual gearbox under bonnet, you can tell which one it is as it is one of possible two.

Reverse Lights not working and engine starts on any gear

You have a reverse indicator switch on you transmission. You will need to make sure that it didn’t come unplugged or that the wire didn’t break. This is a single wire that should be close to the rear of the transmission.
