Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Test for power in and out of the shift controller in all gear positions and if nothing is coming out in reverse , replace the faulty shift controller. thoroughly inspect the wiring harness and connector pins for damage and see if there's power to the revers solenoid for a possible faulty solenoid. Let me know
