Q: Car won't start

asked by on

The "tire pressure indicator light" came on while I was driving. I parked the car and while it was still running the radio went dead, then came back on. Then all of the indicator lights on the dash came on, then the car died and a little puff of smoke came out from under the hood, and it smells burnt. Now the car will not start, and turning the key does not make any noise, but all of the lights on the dash will work, the radio works, door locks do work, and the remote key lock works, just won't start.

My car has 93000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
