I think the tcm transmission control module is loosing signal, The problem is most likely in the pcm or tcm. I would replace those parts next.

Sounds like just bad luck
Its like the reverse band needs adjusting so make sure tranny fluid is clean no bunt smell
if its discolored or smells burnt then its clutches & bands!

Hivi have a 2001 dodge ram pick up 2wd my back tires wont turn to go in reverse at all now to remind you in mi its been two or thre degrees below outside I was wondering what could be my problem I drove it...


Anything is possible in cold weather. BY driving earlier the transmission oil would have warmed up so the reverse should have worked. I'm thinking that may be from applying the park brake that the brakes are frozen to the drum/disc from the water / snow

Wipers not working,will not come out of 4x4 dodge dekota 2001


I knew that when mine did this it had too be more than a coincidence. So I started at the fuse panel and BINGO! the 20 amp fuse for the wipers (#5 on the 2001) was blown. When I replaced it everything went back to normal. Wish ALL repairs were that simple and cheap!

Car won't go in reverse


If the vehcile is V6,then the trans model is the A540E,and if it is the 4 cylinder engine,the trans model is an A140E.Both are 4 speed overdrive transmissions,and sorry to report that on just abot every automatic trans on the road,reverse gear failure is almost always a mechanical problem inside the transmission because there are no shift solenoids involved with reverse as with forward gears.And you did say the forward gears were fine.Good luck.
