i'm getting power from the battery. the ignition is registering that the car is started and won't move from the started position. i had to disconnect the battery so that it wouldn't drain bc all the lights were still on the dash

Apparently after doing a little research, this is a common issue. There are several youtube videos regarding how to correct the issue. Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TlreQ85uCw and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7jVUbOIvNE
