I went to a store, sat in car idling for 10 minutes then drove maybe half a mile. I stopped at a stop sign. started pulling off the car suddenly slowed up, the traction control light flashed on dashboard, the engine died. The engine had a burning plastic smell on the left side (opposite of battery side). Trying to recrank it, the engine light flashes very fast and the car does nothing. the lights & radio works. When you turn the car on the ding sound now is very light and the only gauge working is the battery all other gauges aren't moving.
My car has 112000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
