Sounds like you have larger electrical problems than in the other question you asked. Again, I suggest taking this to the dealer. A small piece of wire that is fried or stripped could be causing the whole problem. It will be easier for them to troubleshoot than for you.

I reversed polarity the battery and had many issues that ended up being the ignition module on the backside of the driverside interior fuse box/panel. Left side of the dashbd. and a $425 fix. Hard to get to but you can practice pulling it from a salvageed car at the boneyard. Get a fresh battery too. Good luck Bernie

All the fuses,relays,coil,crank sensor and neutral safety switch/park indic.switch and many huors researching and probing. If I had to do it all aover,I would bring it directly to a good mechanic. You might get lucky though. Oh and I forgot to mention the used computer purchased on Ebay that I am now having problems getting any of the credit minus restock fee. If you need a good used computer I have one for a cheap $60. I'm have it listed on Ebay BWelch425
