Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my wife was coming home and said the car was losing power. The car died completely
then and she had it pushed home. The next morning the car started and then she turned it
off. The next morning the car had absolutely no power at all. Cannot even put the car in
neutral. There is zero power, not even enough for the door locks. Can you lead me in the
right direction as to what to check and in what order. poblem started suddenly

Take out battery and put on a charger over night. If you check battery in the morning and the needle on charger isn't at 100%, it's time for a new battery. If car starts after charging or if you put in a new battery, test your alternator and make sure it's putting out something close to 14 volts. If not, your alternator may be bad or the voltage regulator may need replacing.
