If its a problem with the cable it shouldnt be too expensive but then again ive never priced or had to replace one. if its a transmission issue it can get real expensive in a hurry.

My 2000 Chevy Cavalier did the same thing. The battery light came on and car started but would not move. Mechanic put in new fuel pump it worked for about 6 weeks and did the same thing. The battery light still comes on but will not start now. Mechanic says wiring. Any suggestions?
