I have to crank the engine a few minutes to make it start but sometimes it wont start at all

At night when I am driving I cannot see what gear I am in, The gear shift is labeled with a P, R, N, D and L, in the center console and they look as if they are to light up, but mine are not? Is this a fuse or a bulb, and if so, how do I change it?
Thanks!!!

I accidently reversed the terminals when jump starting my car. I believe I blew the main fuse. Where is the fuse located?

Thank you!

97 ram 1500 wont start

took the truck to a transmission shop they said it was shift cable they adjusted it the engine i drove it home so i replaced the shift cable still wont go in gear

computer read cruise control not available

had it put on plug in computer read (running lean bank 2)

(could it be the mass air flow senser)

Can anyone explain what these may mean? I came to a slow stop at red light. Light just came on suddenly. No big symptoms.
A little front brake squeak when stepping on brake to start up and move. I was able to return the 1.5 miles to home at 10mph.

I had a battery supplier look up requirement and he said I needed a 500CCA per OE, but I had a air bag light come on and the dealer looked at battery and said I should have a 700CCA. Who is correct?

what do i need to check to find out why my fuel gauge is,nt working

installed new caiipers and new rubber lines and front brake stick after you drive for awhile.

Have been told by auto parts store that alternator is fine but will not produce power in car. Read about adding chip any Idea what it is and where to purchase.

Once I get the car into gear, it runs fine -- does not stall. Happens about 2-3 times per week.

Also , intermittently, the car on idle will have a rhythmic pulsing , searching engine and I can see minor movement on the tachometer, but again the car doesn't stall. I am using the highest grade gasoline, have changed all the plugs and coils; air filter is clean.

Also on the cold start, once the car gets going it runs fine....and the starting problem is also intermittent.

Took it to the dealer and they couldn't find anything wrong (no codes, etc). Is this bad gas or water in the tank? This car has 138K miles. Thanks!

Tion. What could be causing this? The IAC motor or the mass air flow sensor or is it the sensor that's on the throttle body where the butterfly is?

codes p0300-302-304-306-p1351-p1354-p1730 . should i freakout or pray? nice car but worried have to get inspection next week. engine light on.fix or run?
