Hey Carlos

Did you remove any wire on the incline motor anytime?
if so then see that the + and - leads were connected to the correct pins. If not then switch them as this would affect the polarization of the motor.
If they were never removed (and is in correct position) then you might be looking at a faulty console board.
Some models have separate boards, so open the console and check... get it replaced and it should be fine.

Inclines down, declines up

The unit has likely been disassembled and put back together incorrectly. The incline/decline motor runs on direct current, and reversing the polarity of the terminals on this motor will cause this exact problem. If it has not ever been serviced, I would look on the manufactures website for a software update, or fix.

Sounds like the button on the panel is stuck somehow, I think this because when you switch the wires this would reverse the polarity to the incline motor.

can you tell if the panel is recognizing the pushing of the incline buttons, like with a beep or light or something? If it didn't seem like it's responding this may be because one button is constantly stuck down.

What is it when in reverse the automatic transmission on a 1999 Camaro grinds?

Reverse is not "synchronized" forward gears are, so it does make some noise, try shifting to 2nd before engaging reverse to slow gear rotation and limit gear clash or grind.

Moves forward fine, but creeps when put in reverse. when on incline doesn't wasnt to go backwards at all on incline. Havent tried to fix. the linkage is ok, it has hydrolic fluid no leakage noted any...

Try adjusting the main drive belt from engine to transmission. Sometimes the tension is good enough to go forward, but when shifted into reverse the tension on the belt slackens.
I hope this will give you a direction to look in.

My proform tl 585 is stuck on an incline. when i try to lower the incline, the button does nothing. the incline could still raise, but obviously i'd rather lower it than raise it more.

Take the cover off and inspect the wiring. Make sure all the wires from the incline motor are connected.
If all the wires are connected and everything looks OK, try the incline again.
There are only 3 wires on the incline motor, red, white and black. This machine does not rely on any electronics to operate the incline. We know the motor works, because it will go up..Likely the switch in the console is defective.
To lower the incline, reverse the black and red wires, that will make up go down and vice versa.. If that doesn't work, the motor is likely defective.
The incline motor is available, around $110. To order find the model number on the frame of the treadmill and call the service number found there. Have your model number ready (starts with "P").
The console is no longer available.

I put the car in park on a little incline and it would'nt go into reverse it was stuck and i had a hard time with gear shaft, i held the brake and tried to pull it back to reverse and it wouldn't go, my...

The parking mechanism in the transmission has a shaft which slides into a V shaped groove. This is designed to make it easier to put the car in park. The bad part is that it allows for a little movement. The best way to prevent this from happening again is to engage the parking brake when you put it in park, especially on an incline. This will prevent the rollback you experienced from happening again. Hope this helps.

When in reverse i have a noise like a grinding wissing seems to be getting loouder?

Check if this happens while the car is at neutral and you roll down an incline at reverse. If it is not, inspect the transmission, particularly the gear for reverse. Otherwise have the differential inspected.
