The lock rod must have fallen off due to a broken retainer. remove the door panel and repair whatever issues you find with the lock rod. If the plastic rod retainer is broken the dealer can supply a new one for about $2.00 US

I am not too familiar with Australian vehicles, except the rebadged Holden Monero that was sold as a "Pontiac GTO" in the States in 2005 and 2006, and since your Holden is likely to be a GM vehicle, I am sure the same diagnosis applies. You have what is called an Idle Air Control valve that is located on the throttle body. If it is stuck in the wide open position, it will cause your engine to race. I would say that is the first place to look. GM has a huge problem with their IAC valves going bad.

no the code is not 1013
it should flash this same sequence 3 times (one flash small pause then 3 flashes large pause) and then repeat it if there is no other code. if another code is present then it will flash a different number 3 times and then start again with your original code.

Check the bulb by swapping with another bulb and the negative earth cable has a good contact. Does the park light and brake light work properly on that side?

IF you have replaced the battery and the car still wont start I would recommend you check the following and get back to me if it doesn't work.
1.Make sure the t-bar is pushed all the way forward so it regist that its in park.
2.I would recommend you give the starter motor a good tap if the car starts after this you will need a new starter motor
