Got up this am and tried to start my 2000 outback. Dead. Got a jump from neighbor and when I put foot on brake to shift gears car dies. Nothing going when I try to start again. Everything out.
Charged again and was able to shift into reverse then park. When I tried to go to D and put foot on brake car dies again.

What gives?
Is it my battery?
My alternator?
It was suggested that my timing belt may need changing?
Also suggested that I may be low on transmission fluid.

Car currently on incline in driveway. Tried checking fluid, but reading was off due to incline.

Any suggestions??

battery is relatively new. Got 196,000 miles on car. When car started it took a while to catch. Had to charge battery and other car had to rev engine before charge would 'take'.

No wrecks, leaking fluid on garage floor (brown in color) that is not oil - forgot to mention that!

Lights all normal when started. foot on brake killed it.
