no reverse in my 96 sts

The first thing to do is to run the OBD codes, write them down and post them here. Here's how:

From what you say, the first thing I would look at is the switch on the shifter. But, first things first, let's see what the computers know about what is happening with your car.

Probably either the transmission, or the prndl switch (the shifter is not signalling to the transmission that it needs to be in reverse). Run the gear selector all the way through all positions a couple of times then put it in reverse. Then try to reverse and see if it responds.
