I don't see any online reference to that code: Are you sure it's correct? How did you get it? Most codes for the standard OBD diagnostic system begin with a "P" followed by four numbers. Many auto supply stores will let you borrow a code reader (free) with instructions on how to use it (in the parking lot). It's usually a quick and easy way to check the codes.

Some of those do it yourself alarms or starters kit want you to splice one of the wires on the the ALDL to get power. Those wires often get damaged. I'll look under there and check. My cigarette lighter fuse was blown and caused mine not to work. Also, some vehicles have fuses inside and under the hood.

Tail gate ajar switch is probably the cause . Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop.

A constant drain on a battery will shorten it's life. If you have a wire shorted out somewhere on your vehicle, it could be draining the battery ever so slightly, start by looking for a dead short in the system.

no idea what the code refers to but having to pump the accelerator could mean you have a fuel filter or pump problem .

When you turn the key on the ASD relay should turn on the fuel pump and power the injector, Do this lets cheat the system go to the ASD rely open the cover expose the inside have some one turn the key on does the ASD make contact? If not turn the key on collpase the ASD so it make contact do you hear the fuel pump come on? Now try this just as how you iopen the ASD do the same to the starter relay. Put the car in gear e brake on someone in the vehicle in case the car start and you are in front of it and it runs you over so at least they step on the brakes. Key on ASD exposed as your collapse the starter relay does the ASD relay turn on? Here why if you can control all the relay from under the hood you will need a ignition switch (the eletrical part)

Check for 5 volt reference signal at the TPS - throttle position sensor , could have shorted sensor causing the problem . Do you know what a computer 5 volt ref. signal is ? Video's on youtube . Your engine computer controls the starter motor relay which turns on the starter . Free wiring diagram's here http://www.bbbind.com/free-tsb Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine . Under system click on engine ,then under subsystem click on starting . Click the search button then the blue link. Find the starter motor relay in the under hood fuse / relay box , pull it out an look at the bottom , where the pins are . You should see four set's of numbers , 30 , 87 & 85 , 86 . PIn's 30 & 87 are for the power feed to starter , pin 30 should have battery volt if tested with a voltmeter . If you jumped pins 30 & 87 with a piece of wire if the starter is good an battery cable an connections are good the starter would spin the engine over . Just so your not confused , jump where the relay plugs into the fuse box , not the pins of the relay .

5 volt reference

If the 5 volt reference is good , check power an ground circuits to the PCM - engine computer .

If that is good , suggest you take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop for more indepth testing .

I would be checking the external regulator ( if it is not internal in the alternator ) as that will stop a charge for the battery

like you said something broke. that is a great guess. open the hood and jack up the car. you may need to remove the center console to get at the shifter. you want to get under the car and check the shifter cable to the transmission and see if its broke there or disconnected from the linkage. if its not then follow it into the cab through the floor and follow to the shifter. the cable amy be about 6 feet long maybe shorter or longer depending how it i run around. if its not broke under neath its inside. should be a matter of inspecting and removing panels to get at it. check youtube for any videos on disassembly for panels. sometimes it can help. either that or pry and pull till you get it off. if you don't have rear wheel drive then just open the hood and look at the top of the trany and you should see the shifter there and might have to remove some stuff to get at it. they pack stuff in there tight
