WASHER FLUID LEAKS ON PASSENGER SIDE OF CAR ON TO FLOOR WHEN FILLED UP

1 battery under hood and 1 battery in trunck

Started car, drove approx 200 feet, engine stopped , tried to start, no respone, tried to jump, no response. Lights come on, butno sound when turn on key to start position. First time this problem occured

transmission wont shift

i want to store our car for winter. I would like to keep the battery charged during winter. There is an ac outlet in the trunk I think to charge the battery. Can I plug power to it for the winter and not damage the battery or anything else?

The Pump runs continues to run until I unplug it

The sound is under the hood on the driver's side close to the firewall. This occurs after driving for at least 29 minutes. There are no isinglass of problems with gauge or instrumentation.

The car does not seem to respond to my key fab or manually to the master key. The batteries in the key fab needed to be replaced for a while so I just used the key manually. Last night the car would not start and got stranded in a parking lot. The car acts like it is electronically locked out since it fires just fine. It only has 75k on it and it has been serviced and runs like a new car.

This morning I went and replaced the fab batteries. After trying several times the car respond to the fab and locked;/unlocked doors and the car started right up.

I drove home then the same problem started.....the lights blink on the car so I know it recognized the IR but the doors will not lock or unlock.

I tried synchronizing. No change.

Message says electrical components offline

The Crank Position Sensor, plugs, wires, filters (you name it) have been replaced. The car has 5,900 miles on it (sat in a lady's barn for 17 years). My mechanic keeps getting a 1681 (?) crash code. The SRS has been disconnected to see if that's the problem. It isn't. Still stalls, but then it starts right up.
Just started to idle rough and then stalled the other day. I'm going crazy. Please give me some ideas to pass along to my frustrated mechanic.
