Car won't start. Tried charging and the lights came on when the wires were on but once tries turning it over, it clicked once and all lights went out. Readjusted the wires on terminals and lights came back on but the same thing happens. Tried jumping with another car and pretty much the same result just now the ground arcs when we try to turn the key over.

My '96 Camry started fine yesterday and drove it to the bank. When I turned the car off, I noticed all of the indicator lights stayed on even when I took the key out of the ignition. I happened to press the brake and all the lights shut on and off as I pressed and released the brake. Very weird. I tried to start the car again and it was hard to turn over, but it did start. I turned the car off again and all the indicator lights shut off as normal and restarting was not a problem at all. I then went to another store and the same thing happened. I pressed the brake and the indicators turned off. When I finished shopping, I started the car with no issues, but when I when to engage into reverse, the safety lock on the shifter wouldn't let me go into gear. I pressed the brake, still nothing. I also noticed my brake lights would not turn on when the brake was pressed. They were working just 2 hours before. Needless to say, I was stuck in the parking lot which is a whole other story. What can be happening here, because I don't think it's the brakes themselves. I think something is creating havoc in the system, but I don't know what. Any ideas? Suggestions? Tom
