Car won't start and acting weird

Asked by May 01, 2017 at 06:14 AM about the 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Very weird day. So I was driving my 2004 Chevy cavalier
to work. I reversed out the driveway fine and all good.
When I put the car in drive the car would continue to
reverse. So I put the car in park, turned the car off and
turned it back on and put the car in drive and we were
okay drive went fine no problems. When I got to my job, I
like to reverse into the parking spots. I put the car in
reverse to back up and the car continued to drive forward.
So lucky there was a spot in front of me and parked there
and shut the car off. After work I was going home, turned
the key all the lights, door lights and radio worked but the
car wouldn't start.  The battery was new also. But I tried
to jump it still nothing. I only had this car for a week and
I'm the second owner. The previous owner barely drove
the car. The only driving she did was Philadelphia to
Florida. Little over 103000 miles. Oil recently changed and
I put a full tank of gas in it the night before this happened.
Any help would be great.
