First thing I'd check is the TPS (throttle position sensor) or the MAF (mass air flow) sensor. You can get a better solution by posting the car's [year/make/model/engine size] though.

Why does my car runs good but when I brake it fails to accelerate.

You could have a leak in the power brake booster. That could kill enough vacuum to cause the engine to stop. Plug the vacuum hose to the brake booster temporarily, and try it, while stopped.

1999 Yukon Denali stop shifting out of park.

Check the brake lights when this happens, if they are not on then you have found the problem it is the brake light circuit. Go under the dash if the brick lights don't work and check the brake light switch above the brake pedal, it should have 12 volts in and out with the brake pedal pushed down. See typical brake light switch location below. #4 in diagram is brk lite switch.

My van sedona 2005 after i stop it,it won't restart unless i press a few time on the gas pedal ,and also runs rough a bit what could be the cause of it.

May be the starter or fuel pump. Might not be getting gas after turning it off. the gas may be settling to fast into the fuel pump and none staying in the engine. My friends SUV does not start unless you pump the gas pedal. Not an expert but its what i know it could possibly be.

Brakes are 90% of the time non existant. The pedal goes to the floor, if you pump pedal you get sufficient power to stop the car but the pedal still sinks to the floor. There are odd occasions though...

Hi, you have air in the brake pipes and lack of fluid. Your car needs to have the brake fluid topped up and all the brakes bled to get the air out of the system. Until this is done your car is unsafe and should not be driven. If you drive it in this condition you are liable to kill somebody, especially if a pedestrian steps off the kerb in front of you. Get your car sorted out and get it sorted out quickly and don't drive it on public roads (unless driving very slowly to the garage) until it is fixed.

My break light swithes on sometimes without me even pressing the breaks. The break light also sometimes stays on even when I have taken my feet off the break. I have tried changed the break light switch...

Did you adjust the brake light switch correctly? To adjust the brake light switch, first press the brake pedal down a few inches, then pull the switch plunger rod out of the switch toward the brake pedal arm, as far as you can without using excessive force. Next, return the brake pedal to the pedal stop position against the pedal stop and pull the brake pedal toward the rear to push the brake light switch actuating plunger rod into the switch housing limited by the travel of the brake pedal arm rear travel stop position. This procedure automatically adjusts the brake light switch correctly.
If the brake lights still don't turn off with the brake pedal released, check the brake pedal arm for sticking or binding that is preventing the brake pedal arm from returning fully to the pedal stop when the brake is released.

Engine runs rough and will quit running at stop light unless you keep your feet on gas pedal and brake pedal. have changed fuel pump, plugs,wires and sensors. Could it be a magnetic sensor or a vacuum...

your idle air control valve may be the problem. This device controls the idle speed. It may be gummed up with deposits. this is what it the part looks like;

you can remove it and spray it with carb cleaner to loosen up the valve or replace the assembly.
A faulty EGR valve and/or PVC valve will cause similar symptoms.

Gear question

Assuming this is a standard transmission, you always have it in 1st gear. Roll back is controlled by balancing the clutch with the gas pedal.

If an automatic transmission, then the vehicle should hold itself on the incline, unless it is a steep incline, to which you may use the gas pedal to hold the vehicle on the slope, and not the brake. And you would always have the transmission in the main drive gear position.

My brake pedal is hard to push in. the car wont/ is hard to stop. i replace the brake pads and the calipers. what could be the problem now?

i guess your brake booster is the problem. try this.... engine not running just pump the brake at least 25 times at the 25 count,just keep your feet on the brake pedal and start the engine. if the brake pedal won't go down even a little... your brake booster is gone. or something with the vacuum.
