I guaruntee your reverse light switch needs replaced it is located on the top of your transmission it should only take about 30 dollars and 20 minutes to replace if this isnt the problem then ur trans is screwed.

    also remember not to tighten the revers light switch down too much as this will cause the same problem you are having currently.

YOU probably have a problem with the clutch not fully releasing when you are driving.

The car has an automatic transmission and all of a sudden i had no reverse had no slipping or nothing the drive gears work fine no slipping grinding nothing shifts through all gears just fine


It may just need servicing/adjusting.

Your reverse gear is actually first gear ... when you select reverse another 'cog' fits into the toothed wheels to change the direction of first gear ... to give you reverse...

It may be a sticky valve or just a bit of adjustment (workshop job..) that is required.

What you can try ..

Start the car ... move the lever through all the positions several times (foot on brake..). Keep your foot on the brake and then put it in reverse and rev the car. Hard!

Try doing it several times.

An auto transmission works on valves opening and closing. Reverse gear - in comparison with the forward gears - is seldom used. The reverse valve can 'stick'. Try forcing it to open ... frighten it ... but keep your foot on the brake...

My 2006 chevy cobalt wont run in drive it dies but will run good in reverse


On some old Buicks and Oldsmobiles the overdrive would stick on. A bandaid cure for them was to unplug the cable under the hood, but you no longer had overdrive. I heard that changing the transmission fluid would clear that up. There's no overdrive in Reverse.. placing the car in 1st or 2nd gear could bypass o/d also if they don't use the same gear set. Once up-to-speed, place the car in Drive. This only works if the reason the car dies is it can't accelerate in that high a gear at such a slow speed.

The reverse gear is fine but when you let go of the gear stick the reverse lights go out and light pressure put back on gear stick bits lights back in


Ok! This is the reverse light switch located under the gear stick gaiter! Could just need adjusting.....double nut locking system or is faulty/broken! The switch has a plunger that is activated by the movement of the gear stick to reverse!

My manifold is cracked on my 99 hyundai accent i have a used one from a 2000 hyundai will it work if i change it?


Many of these Hyundai exhaust manifolds are cast steel not iron. Cast steel can be welded! It will still probably need to be removed to be repaired but it is an easy repair. I do recommend grinding a "V" groove where ever can see a crack and then welding up the V grooves. You can use stick, wire feed or probably even gas welding but I'd try to avoid gas welding it.

My back reversing lights wont work but the bulbs and the fuse are all good?


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then it's definitely a reverse switch issue. If the reverse switch is faulty, the reverse light won't work even if the bulbs are fine. It is located underneath the transmission where it triggers when reverse is engaged. Have it replaced and you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

2001 Hyundai Tiburon will not go in reverse, but drives fine otherwise.


Hi There,

As demonstrated in the test drive of the vehicle, the Tiburons gearstick has a little groove just passed the crown. Starting in nuetral - lift groove up and put it into the reverse position (where gear 6 is normally) by doing this lift you take the gear box to a second level. to move out of reverse simply take the gearstick and return it to nuetral then into first gear, you are now able to drive forward.

Hope this helps,

Cheers Buckaroo,
Chris.

Gear link or box problem


Sounds like a piece of linkage came loose. If it were an internal tranny problem, doubtful that the stick would be loose. Examine all linkage for something very obvious.
