Your transmission is most likely bad and will need rebuilt.

Check the transmission fluid level and make sure its up where it should be.

I have a 2002 ford explore , the revese lights will not go on when in revese gear ??? have changed neutral saftey switch,cheched bulbs wiring,sockets.

When a driver engages the reverse gear he or she automatically switches the reverse light on by triggering the switch on and if the lights are not coming on it means that a number of reasons are to blame. I will start with fuses and the wiring around the switch. Thank you for using fixya!

Can not revese judders when going forward

First, check the transmission's fluid level for being below level.

The transmission's reverse solenoid may be bad, if it jidders on going forward, the clutches could be worn out in the 1st gear.

At any rate, it sounds like it may need a transmission rebuild if the level is ok and it is malfunctioning this way.

No forward movement but reverse works fine. Help?

More than likely the forward clutches are burnt,causing the no forward movement problem.Remove the transmission dipstick and smell the fluid,if it smells like burnt coffee then you need the transmission rebuilt.

Car goes into revese but will not move

these cars have valve body problems due to 5 large electronic solenoids operating within the vale body...they act like elctromagnets and attract alot of metal fragments subsequently hanging up valves and normal movement within the valve body...good news is these can be serviced from above as the cover is top mounted under the battery...once that valve body is removed it would be advisable to crcuit check all channels with compressed air to simulate hydrallic pressure to circuits and verifying no internal failures or circuit leaks... I wish it was easier but you need internal diagnostic and hopefully the trans doesnt need tore down all the way and can be fixed with a valve body alone....good luck
