Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
Sometimes after I park my 2013 Chevy Equinox, it will beep constantly. It's not loud; it's a low sound and beeps about every second. The only thing I've found that makes it stop is to start the car, put it in reverse, and then put it back in park, rather forcefully, then shut it off again. I've only ever noticed it when I park it in my garage; it's never happened anywhere else. At first I thought it was the garage door opener, but I can clearly hear it coming from the car if I put my hear near the wheel well.

this could also result from low brake fluid check the brake level if it is full un plug the switch @ the e-brake lever and see if it goes out if it dose the switch needs replaced

SOURCE: 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.

This sounds like one or more of your motor/powerplant mounts is broken. Here is an easy test:
Have someone sit in the driver's sear with engine running and trans. in Park.
You stand in front with the hood open. Have them shift from Park to Reverse, and then Drive and back to Reverse and Park, taking time to stay in each gear and give some throttle while holding the brake pedal tight. This will rock or move the engine a certain amount as they shift through the gears and apply power lightly. It will move alot more violently with broken mounts.
If you have a clunking noise on Reverse shifts, you should be able reproduce this with the hood up and pinpoint the noise and/or sight the faulty motor mount with a friend's help. Good luck, I hope this puts you on the right track to fixing this annoying noise.

Sounds like a bent fork in the transfer case. It is a common problem with your truck. The transfer case is a np236. If it just recently started doing this, the rebuild will cost around $800. If the 4wd has been acting up for a while, the planetary will probably need changed, which is another $200.
