My car has an automatic transmission.
Hello in Canada! In most cases, when you have a problem as you’ve described, it’s caused by a reverse lockout or safety switch failure. This is located under the shifter console and can wear out overtime. It’s also possible that a shift solenoid or even the brake switch under the brake pedal might be damaged. It might be a good idea to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete an inspection to determine why this is occurring.
