Check your battery connections. Pay close attention to the negative cable where it connects to the frame and motor. Corrosion at these two points can cause similar issues.
Thanks no corrosion car starts run fine now after i push started. Would warming up cause bad ground go good? Thanks
I push start and drove bit now dash lights cone on at start. But with fresh charge battery i had no dash lights now after 20min drivibg i dont need push start andd got all power. I mean bfore only my abs and srs would light up
Might not be a ground cable issue but honestly it really sounds like it might be. My wife's car had similar issues but after I removed the negative battery cable from the frame and motor(no visible corrosion) cleaned connection area with a wire brush and re attached them all her issues were gone.
I was gonna do that next but literally after i charge battery clean main ground good its started all day no probs but im clean rest grounds next. Thanks for your time sir
