Eclipse goes into reverse but wont go in drive.

Friend, start the engine and let it run a few minutes to warm the trans fluid, set the park brake or block the front of the wheels, put the car in drive position and check the transmission fluid. Sounds like it's just too low for the pump to pick up enough for a forward engagement. Reverse doesn't take much to activate the servo. Most automatics are this way. I'm sure you'll find the fluid is way low and needs the proper fluid added. This may mean you have a slight trans fluid leak.

Brand new Motorola Battery installed by Ford Dealership not holding charge, cables tight, all looks normal?

Remove the negative terminal. With the key off place a test light between the cable end & the terminal. If the test light lights up, there's a direct short in your electrical system. The clock & other constant hot components do not carry enough current to light the test light. Be sure the doors are closed & all things are manually turned off that can be turned off. If test light does not light up there are no direct shorts, check the charging system, alternator & voltage regulator. Auto Zone can check the charging system for free.

2005 Freestar Beeping noise while in drive or reverse . No beeping in park.

You have a blown fuse. It's likly that the battery is'nt charging as the altenator is'nt on either. Because the gauges fuse is blown the gas gauge can be wrong too. The best way to find the blown fuse is to check them all. The cigar lighter fuse can set this problem too as all systems effect all other systems ( big brother is watching ). Theirs other things that can happen but this is where to start. Add a conment and I'll see what you found out and try to help you more.
