I have a 2014 Nissan Altima that won't go or reverse could that be the transmission module???

car is only two year old

wont select reverse of revs out in reverse?

module says std automatic and not a CVT transmission
when a module goes into fail safe you always have reverse and third

check oil level first
wont select
check shift cables or linkages adjustment shift stick alignment

revs out
more likely a solenoid or mechanical failure
if there is a bang as you shift into reverse its the oil pump

if none of the above are the cause
could be the module ......not sure on that

1991 chevy pickup automatic no reverse why there is no reverse gear

Occasionally a person can have good results by checking for low transmission fluid levels or by changing the tranny fluid and filter. However, I am sorry to say, losing reverse gear USUALLY means it is time to get a new transmission. If you are on a tight budget, you can always dedicate a day or two to removing it, and put in a used one from a wrecking yard.

Automatic 2000 camry reverse lights wont come on

Always check the bulbs first, they could both be burnt out. Then check the fuses, then check the relay for the reverse lights, then check the switch that is activated by the tranny going into reverse.

2000 kia sportage 4x4 automatic doesn't shift into reverse

When was the last time the transmission was serviced? Sounds like the filter and or screen is clogged up and causing pressure loss.

1997 Dodge Neon automatic, shifts rough (jerks or revs like it is in neutral). It also doesn't always go in reverse when cold. Help!

Check the fluid level, add some transmission aditive. this should take care of the reverse problem. Check the engine and transmission mounts for the jerking. Let me know.

My automatic gearbox will not find reverse. All the other settings work, it's only reverse.

This tells you, that your automatic gear box is start to compromised. The reverse is always the first victim in automatic gear box problem. So please get it fixed soon, before the problem spreading to "D".

I have a 06 ford focus with automatic transmission when it gets cold reverse don't work until you drive it about 2 miles or so drive always works good when it is above 40 reverse works good also

okay your transmission is either bad or something is wrong with the gearing. Sometimes the teeth that make the gears turn chip and it slips and wont let you in reverse. But when they warm up the metal expands and allows your vehicle to go into reverse. Hope this helps ;)

Automatic Transmission seems to always be in 3rd

The "reverse clutch band", requires adjustment. The name is unrelated to going in reverse. Est cost $100
