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.

2010 chevy Equinox LT Left rear wheel is locked. Could the parking brake be stuck on?


It could be a parking brake issue but it could also be a failed wheel bearing. If you get that wheel off the ground, does it flop around? If so, you need at least a bearing. It may have damaged the knuckle as well. It should have made a distinct roaring or humming sound as it was failing.

I can go from park to drive without using the


Uuuh... No. There is an electrical link between the brake pedal and the transmission to prevent that from happening.
1. It keeps kids from pulling the lever out of park when they are too small to reach the pedals (first hand experience with that one back in the 60's!).
2. It keeps grownups from pulling it into gear with the engine revved up and crashing into things in parking lots and driveways.
3. Transmissions go from Park to Reverse, Neutral, then Drive. Without the brake on, there would be lots of excessive shocks to the transmission.

Gear shift locked in park


Try setting your parking brake before you put the gear selector in park. Then put it in drive before you take the parking brake off to see it it keeps the load off the transmission when your parking on a steep incline or decline.

Could the sloshing water be in your roof lining? If the rain seeped in at the windscreen or back window, it could be in the lining. In that case the lining would have to be removed and probably replaced. To find out, just push on the lining with your hand in several places.
