Pull the side cover off and check the shift linkage actuators, inspection is needed, guessing will not fix the problem.

99 dodge durango wont shift into 3rd gear

If it's in limp in mode it won't shift out of 2nd gear. Get the trouble codes read. The solenoid pack is a pretty common failure. But don't just throw parts at it. Get the codes first.

1999 Audi A6 gear shift not moving, even with break applied

The lock shift solenoid that works withe break pedal has gone bad... it's located next to or In front of the shifter.. on some vehicles. You have a key slot that you can use another key or small screw driver in it to unlock the shifter. Just replace that and it should be fine..

I can't shift into reverse. All other 5 gears are

My VW is not shifting into reverse at all; I think a certain person was driving and mistakenly pressed the gear shifter down for all gears--reverse is the only gear you press the shifter down first in. Doesn't grind, 1 2 3 and 4 work but no reverse no reverse lights.
I've read several complicated (can't see scenario's) posts on screens and linkage and a cable fixed one guys problem but still no solutions.

All of a sudden just now, when I started my jeep, it is an automatic, when I tried to move it into 2nd gear, it just glided all up and down on the gear shift! It never went into any gear, just moved up...

it sounds like the shifter linkage has broken. Its not tough to fix your self if you are mechanicaly inclined. Some times you get lucky and its just a pin. Remove the console around the shifter and inspect everything if not in the shifter then get under there and inspect.

Reverse gear

You have to hold the lever on the gear shifter up then go all the way to the right and straight back.
