    but when i shorted out the computer it gave a reading of 6-2 and 6-3 which indicated that it was the number 1 and number 2 shift solinoid and when i took some voltage readings i had a low reading of only 8.2 volts should't it have at least 12 volts coming through to activate the solenoids properly

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.

It sound crazy but on Toyota's if one of the brake lights is out you can't get the car out of park. Change the bulb and see.

1992 Buick Park Ave. won't start after pressing brake pedal.

sometimes the other switch is to cut out the cruise control when the brake is applied. I would more suspect something in the fuel injection controls such as a mass air flow sensor or throttle "switch." your car is probably too old to have an auxiliary air bypass valve but if it has one look at it as well. good luck

Try cleaning the idle speed control valve and the throttle body, then disconnect the battery negative and let stand for 5 minutes and try it.

Won t start

run the fault codes and look for faulty cam/ crank position sensor as this is indicated by the backfire/hard start and lower idle RPM. Check that battery terminals are clean and tight..
