Sounds like the ignition cylinder is jambed, if you remove the covers and put the key in, you might be able to turn it with pliers, just turn it to the accessories position, then there is a small metal clip that pushes in, push it in and pull the lock cylinder out of place, get a new one from the dealer and reverse to install. If it's above you, your dealer can help, usually about an hours labour or so.
Hope that helps, Good luck

P0172 - System Too Rich (Bank 1)
Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 1 detected a rich condition (too little oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 1 is the side of the engine that has cylinder #1.

Note: This DTC is very similar to P0175, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time. You will more than likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a misfire.

A code P0172 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
* There could be a vacuum leak.
* There could be a fuel pressure or delivery problem

Hope this helps; remember to rating this free answer.

all of the brake lights are on the same fuse. If the other brake lights are working than the fuse is good.

If I remember correctly this third brake light is located in the trunk lid. I would suspect that there is a broken power or ground wire going to the socket for the bulb. The usually area for this to happen is where the wiring harness flexes when the trunk is opened and closed. I think the connector for the harness is in the same area and I'm pretty sure it is on the drivers side. Take a peak at the wiring in that area. you may have to remove some tape to get a good look. If there are wires broken than a simple repair should get it working again.

No fuel pressure? Pump not running? Power to the pump ? Bad fuel pump!

Back up... on asphault and it will usually release... Usually this is caused by either a sticking ebrake cable, overly worn drums w/New shoes, and sometimes a bent spindle.. Dont keep applying the ebrake this will hinder the problem if any of the above are the issue. Once it frees up take it apart, if the cables stuck many times you can back off the cable adjustment and pry it back to release it, then replace it accordingly. If it isnt the cable, once its loosened up, back off adjuster wheel, remove drum and take it to your local parts store and have it sized, they will tell you if its out of spec, also look for wheel cylinder leakage and contamination.. Lastly if neither are the problem, then it probably has a bent spindle and gets jammed at certain brake application.. I have run into all three on NEONS

Yes these do have shifter cables that go bad, usually the bushings on the ends. Check with a good auto parts store. you need DORMAN #14044

next i would check to make sure the rear brakes are adjusted correctly(if drum equipped) if that is not the cause i would check the master cylinder.

You mean shot? Or out of the car? Or empty? Have somebody in the car while you are looking at the compressor stuck on the front of the engine with a belt attached to it, turn on the engine, turn on the ac, if the clutch engages, it is working, if not, it is shot, If it does not blow cold air, it is out of freon. If it is out of freon, get a 20 oz can at walmart, hook up to low pressure and blast it up to 45 lbs. It might work, might not, for $20 you take a gamble, the ac guy will charge you a lot more than that. The hose will only connect to the low pressure side of the ac system. Hope this helps.
