Question Reverse Lock Out

I have a 2003 ZX3 2.3 with reverse lock out. I was wondering is there any way, I can take it off?

Actually it does, you just don't have to activate it, the system will not allow you to go directly from 5th to Reverse without going back to neutral first. So unless you're a total idiot its almost impossible to go from 5th to reverse.

From Owners Manual:
Note: Make sure that your vehicle is at a complete stop before you shift
into R (Reverse). Failure to do so may damage the transmission.
Note: The gearshift lever can only be moved into R (Reverse) by moving
it from left of 3 (Third) and 4 (Fourth) before shifting into R (Reverse).
This is a lockout feature that protects the transmission from accidentally
being shifted into R (Reverse) from 5 (Fifth).
Hold the clutch pedal down and move the gearshift lever into the neutral
position. Shift into R (Reverse).
If R (Reverse) is not fully engaged, press the clutch pedal down and
return the gearshift to the neutral position. Release the clutch pedal for
a moment, then press it down and shift to R (Reverse) again.
