YOUR CAPSLOCK IS STUCK ON!

Sounds like the smartlock module. While you are cranking it, smack the area just above the handbrake lever on the dash, hard with your palm.

They often suffer from dry solder joints and the jolt gets the job done.

Check it is in park?
If so try it in neutral. It might be a stuffed inhibitor switch.
