Question about Chevrolet Equinox
A neighbor needed a jump-start and my husband helped him. After that he came back to park our 2005 Equinox on the driveway and it won't move from Drive to Parking. What can it be?
I cannot be certain this is the issue but with newer model vehicles when you jump start another vehicle you need to be very certain you do not shock load the ECU. usually you put the lights on high beam, fan up high and radio on or you risk short circuiting the system. when you disconnected the system you might have shock loaded the computer. i would get a mobile mechanic to double check this is the issue and not a different problem that occurred in the same timeframe.

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.

most likely your brake switch is out. If you had a scanner you would be able to see if the computer see's you pressing on the pedal. Or if you know how to test you could check to see if it switches ( completes the circuit ).

if the nuetral safety was a problem the car would not start at all, sounds like you have a defective engine wiring harness, this is the most common cause of this i have seen while working for Ford.
