You need to take that vehicle to a transmission shop or the dealership right away! If you continue to use the parking break it is going to cause unpredictable wear on it in the future or even now - that vehicle rolling on more than a 1% incline can kill a person. Take that vehicle in for service and make sure to block the tires EVERYTIME you park until you get that vehicle looked at and do not travel with children in this vehicle!

Have your battery tested. If the battery is good, I suspect there is something that is ON in your vehicle. You will have to find it and secure it. With the vehicle off, you can remove each fuse in turn and measure if there is any amp traveling into the circuit using your volt/amp/ohm meter.

Replace the crank sensor (on the back of the engine, reads off of the flywheel). They have a nasty tendency to fail.

2006 Chevrolet Uplander Parking Lights Stay On


My 2006 Uplander would not shut off the parking lights. I came here for a solution. I saw the answer here, actually the question, and I used the key fob to lock the vehicle. The lights went off. That was a temporary solve. Now, is this a "glitch" or a "feature"?

Chevy 2002 malibu radio wont turn off


First of all, make sure your iginition switch is completely in the off position or your radio will stay on. I had problems with this and all I had to do was make sure my shifter was locked in the park position (try jiggling it around in park until it clicks). If that doesn't help, the fuse for the radio is located on the passenger side of the vehicle on the side of the dashboard- you have to open your door to access it.

Just started


check your ignition switch, they have a mechanism where if the transmission is on any gear ( including neutral ) it wont turn over all the way back, so if you turned off hte vehicle and got the key out " this happens often " before the last step because of a kinda worn key or switch that allowed you to get it out.
your transmission won go to park.
so try playing wih your switch first, go all the way to start, and all the way to acc or off trying to put the tranny on psrk
and see if that helps.
if not let me know
