STICKING AFTER REVERSE LIGHT SWITCH REPAI

1992 Ford Mustang

Transmission problem

I have a 92 Mustang GT. Backup lights were stuck on, so I bought a new reverse light switch and had it replaced. The old reverse switch was slightly scuffed as if it was being ground down. 5th gear was already going bad beforehand. The first day it acted fine. Now, the backup lights are stuck on and the car is stuck in what seems to be either 5th or reverse. You can shift into all gears except you have to force it into reverse. When in 1st through 4th it usually responds as if in reverse. When in neutral it seems to act as if in fifth.

Ok have you pulled the shifter out of the tail housing to see if the bottom of the shifter still has the plastic ball still. These things can wear out how does it feel in gear does it feel like it is really loose? Get back to me and we will go from there.
