starts the car but wont turn over...seems contradictory....not really understanding this part. please re-iterate for us greasemonkey chimps.


the van starts but won't shift out of park when parking brake lite is on,brake is not engaged. also won't shut off.

I'd get a NEW battery as five years old is the time to replace them because newer generation (no LEAD), but tin/antimony last only five years before they make life hard for the alternator...then take a wirebrush and undo the black 1/0 battery cable connection to the chassis/frame...clean the lug,,,,clean the territory where it bolts with a wirebrush and bolt them together~ good reliable ground will make it all work again~
