Stalling when shifting to reverse

So when I shift to reverse my 2003 Scrambler 500 4X4 stalls out. It does not do this every time I shift to reverse, but I would say 90% of the time. Any suggestions?

Does it do it with the reverse override button depressed? If not, it may be the reverse limiter malfunctioning.

My Magnums do the same thing. Unless you hold the over ride button. Not every time, but a enough that it is a pain. I just got used to holding the button.

Disconnect or replace the reverse override box.
