reading through the wiki for openstreetmap about wheelchair access left me confused, do i simply mark a parking lot as wheelchair access yes or limited? because the parking lot has some lots but its mostly for normal people. What should i do?

Please be aware that the keyword to mark parking lots for disabled people is "disabled", not "wheelchair" as on other features (see here).

Schematically, adding wheelchair=yes on a parking, means that people in a wheelchair can access the parking, but says nothing about cars or parking lots.

The right tag to say there are disabled parking lots (and how many) in this parking is capacity:disabled=. Or you can tag individual parking lots (as in this example).

Best regards.
