asked by on

I baught this car used and have been using it for about a month and everything was fine. I used it this morning and it was running perfectly. But about 4 hours later I go to turn it on and the stearing wheel is stuck so I can't turn the key I jiggle it abit and it turns on for about 5 seconds but only the radio and dash lights come on. The car won't start and it makes no noise. I turn it off and try again, this time nothing comes on at all.. the engine doesn't making a starting noise and no lights come on in the car and also radio and ac don't work. I try a couple of times and still nothing. I go inside and try locking the car with my remote but now that doesn't work aswell, it worked fine earlier and even unlocked the car when I was using it the second time but now it doesn't work at all, the light on the remote turns on but doesn't affect the car at all?
