Can not get automatic column shifter on 1996 Chevrolet silverado to come out of park when trying to drive truck unless turn truck back off roll vehicle back and forth while in park then try again usually...

Usually the problem of not getting out of park is caused by the brake switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
The brake switch cuts off or applies power to the solenoid.
But if you have to rock the truck to get it out the problem could be something inside the transmission.

Door won't close

Check to see if anything is restricting it from closing inside of the crevice where the wheel travels and locks. Sometimes debris from trees, dirt or rocks can clog it up.

It could be a loose battery cable to starter connection or loose ground wire or corrosion on the battery cables or wires. I would check all connections and wires for looseness, wear and corrosion and tighten or replace as needed,

Starting issue

Ahh, so when it decides not to start, the engine does not turn over at all?......this sounds like a loose ground/connection on the starter motor will probably need to inspect it which means removing the intake manifold.................If you have little experience working on this engine,I'm afraid you will need to take it to a professional......

The problem could also be your starter relay,...have a look at the fuse block under the hood in the engine bay and check that all relays are seated properly.
