Asked by Jul 09, 2017 at 09:41 PM about the 2010 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On my way home from work, my car dash starting acting weird.  Everything in
the dash would flicker on and off.  The AC stopped working and the window
wouldn't come down.  It's 107 degrees today.  The car never acted as if it was
going to stall and i made it home.  After turning it off, the car wouldn't start.  Any
idea what can be the problem?

1 Answer

I had it towed for repair and it turned out the cause was a bad alternator. I had it replaced and everything went back to normal.
