I turn the key and it says it's in D4 at first then P. lights work and all other electrical systems. I did have the negative cable off awhile when I replaced the thermostat. It doesn't help to jump it. I went to fuel all was fine and returned home. a few hours later I tried to start but just a single click with the shift indicator light saying it was in D4 first then it changed to P still not action from the starter.
