Fist you must check your altenator, this sounds difficult but it is easy to do. If your car wont start charge the battery to full charge, Take a digital tester (you can buy these for under 10 bucks) set the setting to DC VOLTS with the car running you need to have at least 13.5 to 14 volts to maintain your car while running to keep your battery fully charged and run all your acc.

and it would not let you shift out of park because It has a electric shift interlock, when you press on the brake a electric solenoid releases the gear shift. Without 12 volts it will not release the shifter
