2004, 3.0 liter. Noticed indicators for the fuel cap door, parking brake coming on when none of these conditions exist. Had to jump the car today, would'nt turn over. Is it possible that a weak baterry would cause these indicators to come on? Also noticed it's getting harder to sart the car, Any help would be appreciated.

Absolutely! When battery voltage drops, things go wacky in these cars, since many fuctions are controlled by relays and the ecm. I suggest replacing it with a battery appropriate for your climate. Walmart's Everstart Maxx is a good battery, it's simular to the Sears Die Hard, but costs much less, and has a very long warranty, I had one in my old car for 5 years trouble free.
