Equinox beeps when parked

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.

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.

SOURCE: When i put it in reverse it makes a loud clunk

Hi Ali,

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.

Sincerely, Tater Todd

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.

Why is my 2013 chevy equinox car alarm going off by itself


Somewhere in the system is a defective sensor, most likely it is one of the door ajar sensors.

How do I eliminate constant beeping from parking sensor while driving?


What do you mean "parking sensor"?
Do you mean the parking brake is on, or is the seat belt not being used?
You should be able to tell where the sound is coming from.

I have a 2006 Chevy Trailblazer, the problem I am having is the brake sensor light will not go off and it keeps beeping. I was low on brake fluid and put some in however the light and beeping will not...


{: ) The brake fluid sensor is very important because it will tell you through the warning indicator if the fluid level is critical, specially while you are driving on road. You can try a few steps just to rule out some possibilities. Better if engine is off, but keep ignition on while proceeding with tests. Transmission in Park position,and the parking brake DISENGAGED fully.

Sometimes its not enough to put some, better complete fill to max level. Check again the sensor light..
If same problem, try to remove the brake fluid sensor connector. Check again.
If the connector has two wires, use a thin jumper wire to connect the two ends. Check again.

If Yes progress, then you need to replace the brake fluid sensor.
If still No progress, return the connector to its place. It's possible the parking brake switch is shorted, or the wires shorted to grouind. The system may need to be checked thoroughly.
