Hi Darin, Check to see if you have a a bad micro switch on gear shift linkage, if one is stuck open it can cause truck to move in only one direction

You can use a ohm meter to check that it switches from N/O to N/C when activated

click here for picture of common switches.

note the position of wires on switches as these can be wired either N/O or N/C
