Have you checked your alternator? Watch the battery guage and see where it is when the car is running. If it's below the 1/2 way mark, you may not be getting enough voltage to keep the battery charged. Otherwise there may be a loose battery cable either at the battery or at the engine. Check the ground wire at the engine block and make sure the positive is tight at the starter. There is also an alternator fuse; check the owners manual for the location.

Hello Richard,

Will it shift back in to reverse, or park? From what you are saying it sounds like a linkage problem, not a serious gearbox problem.

Also, just have a look underneath and make sure it's not dropped a load of ATM fluid overnight.

The alternator is not charging,or the battery wont take a charge.If all accessories work fine when its running after you've boosted it,its likely the battery.

Have the charging system check or take alternator off and have it check the *** might be bad. Listen for the full pump to pressureize the injectors. One big thing check the timing belt to make sure it has not jump time.

Car stops moving in reverse gear


Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.
