Typical f/r problem is caused by bad forward and reverse switch. Where is your switch, lever by knee or on dash? If lever by knee, switch is on the right side, under the passenger seat. and has rod running to it.

You can swap the f/r cables at the f/r switch, to see if problem changes with cables, or just replace the switch.
