Car won't start, ABS, Battery Light and Airbag light turned on, started pulling while driving, radio cut out
I was driving to the store and everything seemed to be fine. Upon leaving
the store the car struggled to start and the following lights mentioned above
flashed briefly. I was luckily able to get it to start and start heading home
however I noticed the following things while driving home.
- The battery light flashed multiple times and then stayed on
- The RPM gauge did some strange flickering in the 1-2 range while
- The ABS light was on
- The car started lurching forward at times
- The stereo was fine for the first portion of my trip home however it started
getting lots of odd static and then cut off completely.
As of right now I thankfully managed to get the car home and as I figured it
will not start. It does a brief clicking but wont turn over. The lights mentioned
above also flash.
I don't know the first thing about car repair and maintenance.
My suspicion is a blown fuse so I'm looking at the handbook to see what I
need to do.
I'm a fast learner, and any assistance in helping me solve this on my own
would be sincerely appreciated.
Could be a bad altinator or shorted battery. If the altinator is putting out about normal voltage or too low voltage it could cause this concern have the battery and altinator tested and see
