This is what mine is doing. I got a 2015

Techdude2000 So, is it still clicking intermittently? If so, a cable adjustment will need to be done. If you allow it to click too much, you will round off the teeth of the reverse gear and it will get worse, then never backup without pulling the engine out of the frame and replacing the gear.

Take off your right side engine cover and spray some Triflow onto the reverse cable ends at the lost motion plate and pulley, then cycle it into and out of reverse about a dozen times and see it stops the clicking. This is a common issue and a little lube needs to be applied back there every time you change your oil.

austinetc Buffdaddy55: I had the clicking issue. Took it into the shop (warranty). A quick fix. Something about a cable not being properly adjusted.

You know how you take an intermittent problem into the shop and can't reproduce it with the mechanic watching? Didn't happen here. It was a wonderful feeling to have it fail right there. Even when the GW acts up, it satisfies.

reverse fix

On my reverse problem, it was the A and B solenoids that lost connection at the plug. That lasted for a short time then had the gear position switch replaced after losing its ground and that solved the problem on my '02 1800.

VirginiaDan I have the exact symptoms. I looked at the reverse regulator and couldn't see any obvious problems. Sprayed it with contact cleaner and blew it out with compressed air.
Tried reverse again and no joy. I'll keep looking. Thanks for the tips!

Dirtman, the OP listed his issue based upon an '03 (1800), since you have a 1500, my guess would be that it is a totally different issue. PM ole fossil and see if he has a cure for you (his is pretty slick on info for those 1500's) or start a new thread titled "1500 reverse issue" and maybe you can get more attention that way. Hope that helps a little. I sold my 1500 years ago and don't remember crap anymore.

Problem with reverse

Then maybe one of the 1800 guys can help. Don't know enough about them, sorry. Are there any relays in the reverse circuit? One would think so and quite possibly the contacts are cruddy or pitted not making good contact.
