Gauges going crazy frequently means you have an electrical short. Check the wiring harness that comes out of the bottom of the TIPM and then turns 180 degrees and runs between the front driver's side wheel well liner and the body of the car...it'll often chafe against something at that turn and short wires out.

The throttle body more than likely is the cause of your first issue. The car shifter not moving is more than likely brake switch at brake pedal. I replaced mine and issue was fixed. On the right side of your console is a circular plug , pop that out and there's a little override lever to unlock shifter so you aren't stranded. Good luck!
