Car wont drive in reverse

Hello;
\015\012 This is one of the answers you wish was not. The no reverse condition is an intenal transmission problem. It is either in the valve body or the transmission clutch pack is burnt up. you will need to take it in to a qualified transmission shop or put in a rebuilt if you are up to that.
\015\012Hope this helps.

Hi I have a 1997 Chrysler Sebring. I reversed my car out of the driveway, put it in drive to drive forward.... I then put my foot on the brake because I was waiting for my son to get in the car. While doing that I thought I had put my car in park but it was still in drive & I turned the car off. Then I realized what I had done & I put the car back in park & tried to start my car & it wouldnt start. Can u please help me. Please let me know why my car wont start any more.
