Can't get it out of park without the reset button and the park light and ABS lights stay on. When I put it into drive and depress the gas petal it only goes at a very low speed. This all just started after replacing the battery.

I changed all 4 of my brake pads 2 months ago. I never used standard before, but the Autozone didn't carry the ceramic like I usually use. The man said there is not much of a difference. Now everytime I stop for the past 3 weeksthe breaks squeal loudly. What should do? Is it the break fluid?

Whle driving home the Maint. Required light came on and stayed on. What could cause that to happen?
