Question about Cars & Trucks
Well not sure about the ticking or dim headlights. but if you start you engine and pull the positive wire off the battery. If it keep running thats a good thing. if the motor stalls then your alternator is not working. Try to check the fuses. some thing like this is always overlooked and many times is the problem. Next to the shift on top or the side there is usually a little button you pop out and you can put a small screw driver in the hole, this is an emergency release. The car usually has this safety feature so your can won`t get stolen without the key..Also try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes can reset the system and correct some small issues.

SOURCE: Car Won't Fully Shift into Park
You either have problem with the shifter assy, or the shifter cable has come out of adjustment.
If you remove the shifter bezel and center console you will be able to see the shifter cable. There will be a white or black lift tab on the cable. Release the tab and and place shifter in park. If it still does not go into park that means that you will need a shifter assy. If it goes into park with the tab released you push the tab back down with it still in park.
That should take care of your problem.

there are more wires that you cannot see that are melted that is causing the problem. trace all of your wires, starting with the license plate light, all the way to the headlights

try wiggling the gear shift in park and turn your key at the same time, could be that the cable has stretched, push it into park a little harder and see if this helps
