Q: Car won't start.

asked by on

My car won't start.

There could be several causes as to why your car will not start. Unfortunately without more information, it is difficult to narrow down all of the possibilities to just a few. Some of the more common causes I have encountered include a dead or weak battery, a faulty starter or a bad fuel pump. Gathering as much information about why your car will not start, including all symptoms your vehicle has experienced can help someone such as a mobile mechanic look over your vehicle thoroughly and determine why your vehicle is not starting.
