    Question 2014 Honda Odyssey Transmission No reverse

    I bought this minivan for next to nothing from an fellow who ran out of money repairing it.

    It has only 39K miles on it.

    It has light front end damage that is mostly repaired.

    It starts and runs and goes into gear. He said the transmission did not have reverse when he got it so he had a shop install a used one with 30K miles on it.

    The second transmission did the exact same thing.

    So now I have a spare transmission and one in the van that does not go into reverse.

    It also has engages into forward quite harshly. It seems like a control problem to me.

    Anyone able to point me in the right direction?

    Have you scanned it for any transmission codes? You'll need more than a basic OBDII scanner.

    Have you checked the signal of the output of the gear selector? an easy way to do it on a 2014. Does the reverse camera pop up on the infotainment center when you put it in reverse? If not, then the system is likely not getting 'told' you are selecting reverse.

    But having a spare trans ain't a bad thing, especially now that you know neither has a problem

    Seriously, this is why we diagnose things before we order parts... like a transmission *facepalm*
