    Default 2006 with 17K miles won't go into reverse

    I recently had a performance shop replace the original exhaust with straight pipes. I've driven the car 10 times with no issues since then. Yesterday and today when I start the car it won't go into reverse. Running, off, hill, flat doesn't matter. All other gears are fine. Shifter won't even go into the slot as if it is not there. No warning lights and no error codes. Any help or suggestions appreciated.

    Have you checked reverse lockout fuse, plug to solenoid ?
    I don't do "PM's" and I NEVER read "visitor messages" since I prefer DIRECT communication.

    I have not. Is there something on the forums to show me how to do that? Thanks

    I would check the fuse first and then the connector at the solenoid and also the connector on the harness (C300 in picture) since either could possibly have been hit when they were messing with the exhaust.

    I just checked. I think that it is a 15amp fuse in #14 slot & labeled maybe something like "Rear 02 Sensor to Heater Relay". Reverse lock-out and ship shift solenoids are also tied into that circuit.

    If that were the cause I think that you would have engine codes, though.

    Rear O2 wiring is damaged, very common on Gen-3 Belanger setups due to the sensor placement. Lockout and skipshift are powered off the same circuit.

    So if the wiring is replaced it will fix it? It was indeed a Belanger exhaust upgrade.

    No. The problem will just re-occur. We change the entire setup around to combat this. Downstream O2 sims are the easiest solution in your case if you dont have OBD2 inspections in your area.
