Is the check engine light still on? If so you can scan for the code. Maybe a trans shift solenoid has failed. Best to have your local garage diagnose it at this point. The Ford Focus AT is not the most robust trans on the market now, lots of issues/complaint with them.

I just got off wk, went to back up and NO REVERSE!!!! My engine light is on and when I put it in reverse the “rear park aid” show with an “on”. I’ve tried switching it to off just to see it would help No help, I still can’t back up! I wonder if wk would pay me OT for sitting in the parking lot?
