come out of park by it's self it runs fine we checked the fuses and the battery what else could it be?

MFD was replaced in 2014, stopped working on a cold day. This time car was parked outside in cold weather. Parked it in the garage & next day it asked for the location disk, it found it and loaded. MFD went through a loading and the MFD operated ok. Does Toyota acknowledge the issue?

130,000+ mileage. The car can be driven
but has a sound as though the fan belt is slipping and a high pitched squeal when the steering wheel is turned to the right or left, even when not driving, but parked.There are no fluids leaking.

car was running sluggish. The mechanic washed my engine. I took it to another shop because it was still mis firing. The ignition coil was replaced, fuel filter, and 3 injectors were replaced. The car still surges, hesitates while driving. Mechanics have looked said their isn't anything with the car,but it still acts up. What can it be engine light comes back on. Computer shows it misfires. I can't understand why the car still doesn't perform. Please I need help?

2016 Toyota Avalon Limited - New 4,700 miles.
When accelerating from a stop or slow roll, vehicle hesitates 1-3 seconds, when slightly stepping on gas to go. This hesitation has happened at least 1/2 dozen times, and has put driver and occupants in harms way. Took it to dealer, but they were unable to reproduce issue, and thus could not resolve the problem. Dealer said, they had tested it diagnostically and by driving vehicle. Dealer had no answer for the problem. Dealer said if it happens again, bring it back in for further testing. Am thinking I soon could be calling the dealer from the hospital, or from 6ft under ground. (BTW, it's been in the high 90's temperature wise; I read online that it could possibly be related to a heat build up under the hood...Mentioned it to the dealer, but they didn't try to simulate the hot conditions. Any suggestions?

I can't turn the ignition switch or roll the windows up do to the the security fail switch. Help me please?
I got a big problem and I got to handle this soon as possible.

Recently I replace my car battery however a couple months later it went dead my roadside service said that it was my alternator took it to the shop. shop said that my alternator was fine and couldn't find a problem. A couple weeks later my car went dead again. Roadside came back out again and said that the cables connected to my battery wasn't tight enough. After tightening them again, they worked fine for a couple of days but every couple of days it comes loose and the car dies again. This last time I tighten it again but when starting my car the gauges didn't work, the speed, the gas or the dashboard monitor just did not work however the lighting in the gauges does work and my radio and all other lights do work.

They are two , one on top and the other on bottom
