My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

From what you have described here this sounds like an electrical fault with the transmission/gear box position sensor/switch.This model should use a sensor/switch of some kind to let it know what gear position it is in to turn on the reverse lights and if this is at fault this may be causing the no start issue here.I would have this checked into/tested further to help pinpoint which component is at fault here for sure and then from there repaired.In some cases it can be best to have an experienced repair facility test this here for you.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
