With out anymore info its hard to answer. I am going to refer you to vanagon man his name is Kevin. He may have come across this. But I would ask the salesman how he knew?

It wasn't a salesman it's just a private sale the woman i'm buying the car from said she drove it to the store one day and when she tried to back up it wouldn't go she was going to call a tow truck . she said she turned the a/c off and when she tried it it went into gear

If the idle is to high with the ac on it might not go in reverse. Other than that follow your linkage on the transmission and see if you are bound up anywhere. Now your cable for you gear shift selector may be hitting something in back of the dash when the ac is on.
