We need to see if it is the cable/shifter or the transmission. You will need to remove the air filter box and disconnect the cable from the transmission and see if the shifter moves out of reverse. If it does, it is inside the transmission. But if it still does not move out of reverse, then it is the shifter cable. See the directions below.
