The cover behind your gearselector needs to be removed and behind it you find the fuelpump relay to the left this is the most common fault on these! Tap the relay whilst cranking if it starts you'll know it's that for sure! It could be totally non functional in which case you would have to bridge terminal 87 and 30 and see if it starts then, if it does the relay will need replacing in either case!

I am driving a 1997 Toyota Prado 3.4 L petrol Automatic. Engine cuts out.

im assuming there are no lights on the dash.
If you remove both battery terminal wire and touch them together (Wires only)
that will reset any fault stored and reset the computer.
hopefully that will correct the fault.

2008. Why is it shutting off while running?

Ground cable to battery ? Possible it has corrosion up into the end of it or several strands of wire broken and unable to carry the needed current load.

Key switch on 1998 taurus

I would look for a direct short in your wiring harness. It sounds to me like the wires are shorted together under your dash or maybe even out by your starter. Look for a location that contains the ignition wires and the starting circut.

Engine code 14 ignition signal and code 26 rich fuel mixture detected on a 94 geo prizm. i checked spark plugs, wires, replaced distributor cap, and fuel filter. where do i go from here?

I would start by replacing the primary ignition system,cap,rotors,wires,you can't just check these items they could be defective where you are unable to see.a rich condition can be caused by a mis fire from a wire,a bad tps,or 02 sensor,but I would always start with the basics and not overlook them,if you need any more help let me know.

Got new battery and starter ran for 2 days, then unable to start. had to jump it. but would not continue running. any ideas

If it will run with a boost hooked up, or with battery fully charged, then alternator needs to be tested. Charge battery back up, check and record voltage before starting ,then start it and check voltage when engine running . It should increase when engine is running, otherwise something wrong with alternator itself, or wiring to or from it. Clean and inspect wiring to be sure.

Car wont go out of park

do the brake lights work ?
they probaly do not,there is a brake light switch on the brake pedal lever,there is most likley a broken wire at this switch.If wire is broken repair wiring.
If this is the problem and you are unable to repair your self,do not start vehicle,put key to run position,then pull shifter into netural,then start vehicle and now you will be able to drive to get repaired.Remember if this is your problem you have no brake lights,be careful.
