Put your foot on the brake. Most/all newer cars have an interlock that keeps you from shifting from park to drive without your foot on the brake. Sometimes if you park the car on a hill, it will be difficult to move the shifter out of park. That's why some people use the emergency brake before putting the car into park when parking on a hill or incline (like a driveway)
If you want to turn off the running lights off try to engage the emergency brakes. I have a 2000 Montana and that works.
If the engine is running and the alternator is good. If the engine is not running, no.
Get engine running. While the engine is running disconect the POSITIVE termninal from the battery. If the engine dies, the Alterntor is bad.
No , just when the engine is running
The alternator - it provides a charge to the battery while the engine is running.
Because it's in park.
engine is running lean while eccelerating
Yes (, just be sure the engine is not running) .
Oil sputter is going to be a normal thing if the oil cap is not on while the engine is running. The engine should never be run with the oil cap open. The engine actually has less compression when the oil cap is open, and this could hurt the engine.
If the check engine light is flashing with the engine running , that means a spark plug misfire has been detected
Try applying parking brake
Depends. An older Diesel is likely to keep running. A modern, with a full set of electronic engine diagnostic might not.
Yes, and disconnecting the battery while the engine is running can severely damage the computers
Try putting the pedal to the floor while cranking it
Generally when the engine is hot or the AC is on.
You've run out of fuel...
Is the engine running ? no
Crank angle sensor
you probally have a ground wire off
The engine will have a distinct "Knock" while running.
Sounds like the engine heats and the ignition fails.
probably a bad camshaft sensor.
