why are these lights on and how can I fix it?

Every time you drive it

shifter was locked in park position. could not get it out of park. turns out that a small tab can be popped out of right side of shifter console and a white plastic 'lever'type can be pushed up or down (not sure) which releases the locking mechanism on the shifter. i am also getting an engine light that goes on. and the display is not corresponding with the actual position of the shifter.
what is the problem called and where can i take it to get fixed. and how much will this problem cost me. i understand that the part is a 'shifter sensor' that is bad, broken, or out of adjustment.

Taction control light is off once i start after i start driving more then 30mph the traction control turns on why??

what do i do to turn it off? i've restarted my car several times and it seems to not be affecting me driving but i dont want to continue to drive if its bad. if you could please let me know what i should do in this situation

I want to get a car wash but concerned about the antenna

Not sure if it's the altinator or if it's an electrical issue

Replaced the primary, it was stuck, closed. Also heard the system needs to be flushed or burped.

The sound occurs when i press the gas pedal even in park.

My jeep over heat in the highway

It will start with the remote, but it doesn't continue to run, I have 2 remotes the same thing happens regardless of which one I use. The truck will start with the key.

So first, I had my oil changed at meineke yesterday. I've never been there before but I couldn't get in with my mechanic so I just figured I'd do it quickly. Things were fine after that, I drove to work and when I got off work 7 hours later I started the car and it went into drive; drove maybe 10 feet forward and appeared to stall out. Which I thought was odd since I didn't fill the tank(stalling is occasional due to charcoal cap which was already addressed and a common problem). When car stalled, I let it sit a minute and turned the key; it just made the starting crank sound like it couldn't turn over so I held it past for 15 seconds, did that a few times and nothing happened. A friend came to try to jump me since battery light was on, nothing happened since battery was tested and good. AAA came and towed it, my mechanic looked at the car(very trusted guy we've been using for 6 years). He said fuel pump was bad. He changed the pump and started the car, now all lights on the dash are on. He is keeping the car to look more into after the long weekend to find the problem. Does anyone have any idea what this may be or have any of you with the jeep patriot experienced this exact problem after changing a fuel pump? Thanks in advance for any input and advice- just trying to figure out what I'm getting into cost wise.
My car is a 2007 Jeep Patriot 2.4L automatic. 119,300 miles.
repairs done;
I've had the car two years(my first car, I'm 19). Summer of 2015 I had alternator replaced. December 2016 I needed upper tie rods replaced. Other than that I can't think of any problems fixed, always passed inspections, oil changes always done timely. It's always been a good car, I just can't figure out what it could possibly be.

Sound cuts out and I turn it off and it works for a short time and sound cuts out time after time !

It came up with crank position sensor fault so I replaced it it then come up with timing Chane fault so I replaced the timing chain and now it is coming up with throttle body fault but it seems fine it's like the computer is bad and making the car run really bad why might this be ?? It happens all the time and doesn't go away

Driving in the rain and ABS and anti-skid light came on. Cruise control will not come on

ithas been running a little hotter than normal. changed t/stat 6 m0. ago it helped for a time but doing it again. dont want to take any long rides till resolved

subsides little when driving. No trouble shifting (auto trans) , no leaks. Any ideas of what it could be. A/C also died. Could they be related?

I bought this vihicle brand new and have only owned it for a year and 3 months. My lights come on and the key remote works, nothing was left on for it not to start. It makes a click when I turn the car over but nothing else happens. Please help

I checked out other 2014 Jeep Patriots and their transmissions purr, mine sounds very noisy. This started a few weeks ago, at about 25K miles.

standard trans is junk. ihave an automatic what do i need to do

How heavy of a trailer can my jeep tow?

Where is the fuse box on my 2007 Jeep patriot?

Every time I shut off the car and exit, i hear a faint clicking noise. what is it?

After starting car and shifting car to drive, attempts at accelerating wont happen. Gas pedal touches floor.

When giving it gas it acts like it is very hesitant...upon gear change. Is it trans related .

I just need the lights off before I get an inspection

Filled reservoir bled systen got pressure to clutch pedal but clutch will mot rngage any gears what do i do mext

need to replace front brakes looking at estimated cost

Been driving manual trans for over 50 yrs.

My ac is sporadically blowing hot/cold air. Also, I will have it turned on high and it goes from blowing full blast to no air coming out of vents. I can turn it off then back on and sometimes that Kickstarts it. Other times I have to leave it off for a few minutes and then turn it back on.
