Help please! Reverse lockout failing.

I have a 2010 2SS.

Suddenly last night, my reverse lockout stopped working. I was trying to shift into 5th and was unable to go into the gear, grinded, and then realize that I was actually attempting to shift into reverse at that point. This has never happened before, no warning signs, nothing. I only have 15,000 miles on the car and don't abuse it.

I did some research and found that it could be a computer glitch, so I disconnected the negative battery terminal for about 10 mins, and still nothing.

The car is still under warranty, but if there is a quick fix I can do myself rather than having my car stuck in the shop potentially for days, then that would be a big lifesaver.

Well....If it's the same as I had on my 97 Z28, the reverse lockout would be a solenoid. It's a quick fix, or at least it should be if its the same. I had to replace it in the Z, took longer to get the car up/down than it did to replace it. Since it's still under warranty, bring it in shouldn't take too long to fix.

Have you tried seeing if it was a one time thing by gently shifting towards Revers while doing say 10 MPH or so? If it's still not blocking properly then take it in.
