The knocking/clicking noise seems to appear shortly after the ignition switch is turned from OFF to RUN and BEFORE it's rotated to START. I'd suspect it's an HVAC actuator that is misbehaving rather than anything related to the "no crank" condition (although they may have a common root cause).

Really need clarification as to what the THEFT light is doing (or not). Gotta start with the basics.

Did this set of issues start IMMEDIATELY after the work on the engine work was done or was that a while back? If a while back and everything worked for a while, then it's probably immaterial.

but not now it is stuck in park and even though I can move the shifter it does nothing to the transmission.
Clarify this so it can be understood, doesn't make much sense as written.

If you can move the transmission lever after the shift lock is released, either normally or by using the bypass in the owner's manual, does the shift cable at the transmission move in the corresponding direction and manner?
