2007 F5 Have to press reverse button 2 times to engage

I have to press my reverse button 2 times to engage reverse. When I press the button 1 time the wrench light comes on but doesn't engage When I press the button 2nd time it engages the the backup beeper comes on and wrench light stays on. When I disengage the wrench light stays lit. If I turn off the engine and restart the sled the wrench light is off until I press the reverse button.

Sounds like your reverse solenoid is going, same thing happened to my wife's 2007 F5 got stuck in reverse which was a PIA as we were at a restaurant. Got lucky and got it out of reverse and got it back to camp onto a truck. Dealer found the reverse solenoid bad and replaced it.
