The car had no symptoms then randomly died while I was driving. Initially it tried to turn over but wouldn't. Jumping did not help. After having towed to my house there is no power at all. Scanner says no codes available even though check engine light is on
My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there. There could be an issue with the battery or the electrical system for the vehicle to stall out randomly. Check the battery for any loose connections and to see if the battery is fully charged. If there is nothing wrong with the battery, then check all of the ground wiring to the vehicle and see if there is any loose wires. A low charged battery or a loose ground wire will cause the engine to stall out at any given time. If you need further assistance with a stalling condition, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
