weird.....

ok i have two problems, one isnt really a problem but a scare and the other is a problem thats very annoying.

1. ok so i went to wash my car yesterday and backed it out of the garage and realized i was too far away from the hose. so i turned the car back on and try to move towards the spot where the hose is. The steering wheel wouldnt turn on and the brake was stuck? . So i turn the car off, it was still in D by accident, and my driveway is sloped so the car slowly starts creeping backwards. By then i was scared as F**K! So right as my car is about move off my driveway, the brake losens up. Mind you the Engine light was on this whole time and the wheel wouldnt turn. So then I put the car back in park and turn it on and wash my car. Weird Huh? Does anyone know what that was?

2. Everytime i get in my car i have to like honestly PULL at the seatbelt to get it to move so i can put it on. What Should i do? should i bring it to the dealer and ask them to fix it?

I'm have no idea as to what caused the problem. I would just forget about it and take it to your dealer if it does it again. The seatbelt should be an easy fix by your dealer. That is weird though.

It sounds like your steering wheel was unable to unlock it self. This is caused by too much pressure on the wheel when you turned it off. If this happens again just try to turn the wheel a bit to take some of the pressure off the locking mechanism.

Your car has to be in N or P to start. If the steering wheel does "lock" - wiggle it while removing and reinserting your key. (Just like you would in a car with a mechanical steering wheel lock)

When you park the car, or stop it and plan to leave it - put the car in park. If I recall, the car won't start if the steering wheel lock jams.
