No longer having a no-reverse problem. Thank you very much.

I think if after replacing my solenoid, if I still get the reverse failure, I am probably going to shift it, as they say on Wheeler Dealers, and get a different car.
Yes my 9/99 build date has the GM tranny... according to the BMW dealer whom replaced all the solenoids in my tranny. Actually while I did experience probably 6 total no-reverse problems in April and May I haven't had an occurrence since.....and I am aware how often I use reverse these days...a lot everyday. This was the solution for me.
