I had taken out my battery last week and tried to out a new one in this week, but when I started connecting it, my car turned on. Without a key. What could this be? And is it fixable?

Check the wiring down by the starter. Sounds like something is loose down there and by moving the battery cables around you inadvertently made a connection. HTH. -Jim
