After warmup, my 2011 Chev Equinox with 58100 miles has started to pop out of gear at starting from stop or very low speed such as pulling into a driveway. Problem has been experienced by two shops and dealership but happens so quickly no code can be observed. The dash info will flicker, goes well not neutral and door locks will pop up and down. Had connections to BCM cleaned, and one suggested that we have car “reprogrammed” as maybe a glitch developed. Even called Chevrolet and they didn’t offer any reason but take it back to the dealer. Thoughts?Thanks!

Hello William,

Any aftermarket accessories added to the vehicle, and if so are they connected to the battery directly?

I have seen many cars with other things added that form a poor connection for the body ground at the negative terminal.

I've had one car that had a new transmission fitted by another dealer, before I found a red hot battery positive feed to the rest of the car.

No aftermarket. Should I disconnect the battery and clean terminals? No apparent corrosion. Would that reset the system? Was suggested to me to have system reprogrammed.

No aftermarket is a good start.

Then we know nobody has been mucking around with it.

First step would be see if there are any programming updates.

I would also check all the ground points are clean and tight.

Disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes might do something, but it may not.

Worth a try.

Sometimes it works when lockups occur during programming.
