2018 Jeep Compass Reversing while in drive
Last Thursday my 2018 Jeep compass, purchased 1 month ago with 5000 miles on it, kept moving backwards while in drive after reversing out of a parking spot. The engine light came on, and a message "Shift the car to P, then to desired gear". I did just that, but it still moved backwards while in drive. Then the wheel and brakes locked, the parking brake was stuck on, the electronic system was on but the engine was off, and I could not turn the car completely on or off. In order to stop blocking traffic and try to get the car working, I disconnected the car battery and waited a few minutes. After reconnecting, the car turned on normally and I put it in drive. The car did begin to move forward, but all of a sudden jolted backwards. I slammed on the brakes, put the car in park and back to drive, where it moved forward long enough for me to pull back into my original parking spot.
I had the car towed to my dealer, who is saying that my disconnecting the battery wiped all error codes, and the car of course is now working perfectly fine for them. Any suggestions? I am obviously nervous about driving a car that spontaneously reverses, especially when the dealership hasn't found anything to fix.
