Hello, this is an automatic transmission? Is it full of trans fluid? Does the fluid smell burnt or look black? Are there any warning lights on? All the forward gears are ok, it just acts like its in neutral when you put the shifter in reverse?

auto trans has fluid and looks clean. Acts like it is in nuetral

Ok if it has no reverse but forward is ok. It is a failure of the reverse clutch drum/hydraulic circuit. You will always have reverse and one forward gear if all the electronics fail to limp home. So the trans has an internal failure that will require it's removal and either taken apart to overhaul that trans or replacing the transmission
