First thing I would do is find out if you have a power drain on the battery with everything off. One way to do this is with a multimeter (Select AMPS and put the probes into the right sockets on the multimeter) disconnect the battery positive and put the positive probe on batery positive and the negative probe on the Positive cable you are now connecting the car to the battery through the multimeter. make sure everythings switched off (including all doors closed so interior light is off) read the current and if you have a high reading remove one fuse at a time when the current drops this is the circuit most likely to be flattening your battery! remember that your radio pin may need to be re-entered after battery disconection. Boot lights are another common reason so get a volonteer to be locked in the boot and see if the light goes off
Good luck

2001 sabb 9-5 will not go into park

The shift linkage and gear selector/neutral safety switch are integrated into a small flat unit on top of the transmission located under the battery tray which has 4 bolts 10mm to remove. The shift lever is exposed when the tray is removed and may be obstructed by something that has fallen in its path like loose wire harness, work glove, you name lt. Check all fuses in fuse box then visually inspect the movement with a helper moving the shifter. The shift mechanism itself may be worn out and happens frequently. Good luck.

Car has to be jumped frequently, multiple batteries, and dies when driving

I hesitate to suggest this, but it does work well. After you start the engine, and while running. Unhook the negative battery cable. If the vehicle stalls, you have a bad alternator.

B200, 2006 cvt trany,starter doe,s not crank at all every once in a while, battery ok, connections et ground ok. the scanner tell,s us starter is defect. I dont have a wiring diagram so i have to figure...

You can electrical supply directly from plus battery to electrical starter solenoid.
For that you must prepar an electrical wire. One end connected at the electrical starter solenoid, and another end directly on plus battery. If electrical starter crancks the problem is on electrical supply. If doesn't cranks then electrical starter
is out of order and must be removed from engine and repaired! The most frequent problem of electric starters are carbon brushes used!
Did you try this operation?

Battery goes flat frequently after 5 days not used. Ford say that it is because of electrical componentry runnign all the time and you have to expect this. Is this so? I have put in a new gel battery and...

Why are you using a gel battery?? you shuld only be using a starting battery. Gel batteries, when weather gets really cold, will die out and cannot be recharged. They are not like a typical starting battery made for the vehicles large drain when starting.

Frequent headlamp replacement

Have your battery checked. A weak battery (Sorentos all have lousy stock batteries) may allow electrical spikes to blow lamps. Also make sure your battery cables are tight.

Note: The stock battery on 2003 and 2004 Sorentos V-6 models is a group 24. The group 34 battery is a better choice with more CCA and reserve capacity bit may require minor modifications to the battery tray or hold-down clamp.

Make sure you're using good quality headlamp bulbs. Auto-parts stores with lamps behind the counter are often higher quality than blister-pak lamps from Wally-World.
