Take it it is a outboard unit
check the area at the top of the leg as there is a detent system that prevents selecting forward and reverse at the same time
it is the same lever in the leg that moves from forward to reverse so I doubt if that would be the problem
take it to an outboard specialist shop for a proper diagnosis

My reverse lights wont turn off.

Hi Shawn, The reverse lights are grounded via the switch on the gearbox, meaning that the live feed is going to the reverse lights. When they were cut and the cables joined, it must have been grounded and ahs a constant ground connection now. take off the insulation from the cables which have been chopped and then disconnect and reconnect one at a time until you find the one which controls the reverse lights. Once identified, trace the cable through to the switch. You may find that a replacement switch is needed, which you may be able to find at a breakers yard. Regards John
