Hi,

The transmission gear selection is identified by a transmission range sensor. Did you see a change in gear select or did it actually go to reverse?

Pay attention to the gear indicator to see if it is accurate. Also, take a look at the shift linkage under the hood to make sure nothing is loose or disconnected. Note there are
two different transmissions for this vehicle. Let me know if this has a 6 speed automatic.

_______________________________

If it is the 6 speed, here are directions for adjusting the shift cable.
