My car was running fine. I drove it 2-3 miles city & freeway a week ago to make sure. I was going to lend it to a friend and handed him the keys at a different location. When I got home he showed me that he was unable to move the car out of Park. I got in and the motor started fine. I checked and the battery was showing at the normal level,
but I too could not budge the car out of Park. That was a few days ago.
Today I went out to start the car up and to my surprise, the battery is completely drained. The battery is only about 17 months old. I previously had had the motor rebuilt a couple of years ago and the car hasn’t been driven but 2-3 thousand miles since.
Any ideas what the problem may be? Any advice as to what kind of mechanic should look at it? (the friend admitted to pushing buttons but since I wasn’t there I don’t know if that was before he tried to move out of Park or after).
