Try starting it in neutral instead or park...It may be your neutral start switch is bad in the park position. Otherwise, it sounds like a starter relay is not working.

You need to go to a parts house and have them read the codes. Most do this at no charge. A blinking service engine light indicates that a problem exists that can cause engine damage. For example, if a spark plug is miss firing it could damage the catalytic converter. The steady light indicates that a code has been recorded.

in order for the shift lock solenoid to release a stop lamp signal must be received. the 2 most common causes of an intermittent inop. shift lock solenoid would be (1) intermittently the stop lamps do not work (stop lamp switch, etc.) or (2) intermittently the shift lock solenoid receives power but does not operate (bad solenoid). There are certainly other possible causes but I'd begin by confirming the stop lamps turn on when the shift lock does not release. Hope this helps

Yes, there should be a timing mechanism that shuts the defroster off after a certain time. Are you sure you are giving it enough time? Usually about 10 or 15 minutes when most defrosters turn off automatically. Try contacting a dealer service or tech rep about the system- how long it should stay on, how to diagnose, where such parts are located, etc.

obviously not a mechanic
with bad sensors you would have starting and noticeable engine running problems
have the fault codes read by an accredited service center and check the EVAP system

There could be a whole lot of reasons.
Here are some, not in order of "what is most likely".
1) Your electrical "cooling-fan" circuit could be at fault.
This is the circuit that includes the radiator cooling fan, the engine block sensor, the electrical relay, and the wiring.
Any fault here will cause overheating.
2) Your water pump or drive belt could be at fault.
3) Your engine could have an air bubble that need to be cleared.
4) Although quite rare, check to be sure the lower radiator hose in not collapsing when the engine is revved ( such as when going down the road at 40-70 MPH)
Test bt feeling of it to be sure it is not "soft".
God bless your efforts.

could indicate dirty transmission oil
bad harness connections or faulty reverse servo/ solenoids needing heat to operate properly
run the fault codes to see if any sensor shows up

You may need an alternator.Once battery voltage goes low enough the brake warning light can come on warning you the battery voltage is too low for the brake system to work properly. The bat light is warning you there is a problem with the charging circuit,most likely the alternator.

Sometimes it helps to have a helper standing at the end of the hood, as you pull the hood release mechanism inside, have the helper pop the hood with palm of hand in area of release mechanism. I haven't looked to see if you could remove front grille?
If there is a national brand autostore in your community, they have been known to make house calls. Possibly, they could raise your hood, replace the battery or give it a charge, whatever. I don't know what they charge?
Sometimes you can charge your battery by hooking up battery charger to battery cable at your starter motor?
