From what I read having the p0500 code due to the speed sensor does cause shift problems

But I've never had the problem, what year and how many miles does the car have by chance?

You're not trying to shift into reverse while moving forward are you? :p

That's probably what the speed sensor is reading, hence locking you out from shifting into reverse. It's reading motion when there isn't--maybe? I would test/replace the vehicle speed sensor. Other than that, not sure.
