    In vs On

    I could not reach in time day before yesterday.

    Can I use "On" above in place of "in"

    You need an object after 'reach' and a question mark at the end of your question.

    The preposition 'on' may be correct, but it doesn't need to be capitalised.

    You also need "the" before "day".

    I could not reach London in time the day before yesterday. (This assumes the reader/listener knows what you were trying to get there for.)
    I could not reach London on time the day before yesterday. (Same note as above.)

    I could not reach London in time for my uncle's funeral the day before yesterday.
    I need to be in London at 9am the day before yesterday. Because of problems on the train, I couldn't get there on time. I was about half an hour late.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
