Hi, sorry for the bother, but i was wondering if you guys can help me out.

Well today, while trying to turn on my car, I tried to turn it on but wouldn't even crank, turnover or atleast make any noise. The Voltage meter says I have about 12.3Volts my gas is about 1/4 empty. The display says: "CHECK FUEL GAGE" and i think its wrong.

I don't know what it can be, the only codes i have are the Shift Solenoid B, Rear Wheel Speed Sensor (T033).

Any idea what it can be?

Or one last thing, I have the Emergency Brake On, and when i turn the key to put the car in DRIVE, the brake will not release.

The parking brake will not release because it is vacuum operated and with the engine off there is no vacuum. There is a manual release handle under the dash. Watch you head if you release it while looking for it.

As far as the no crank, check the battery & cables. It may have 12v but with a shorted cell. Do the lights and other accessories work?

Thanks on the tip for the brake.

And as for the crank, the lights and everything else works, I checked if it would power my sound system and it does. All electrical works. I doubt its the starter, or should i not be doubting it?

I am going to go out on a limb here and say it's the battery. Possibly cables, but my money is on the battery.
