Hello. If your car is not responding or starting, the first thing I would check is the battery. A dead or low battery is one of the most common reasons for why a vehicle may not start or respond. I would also check to make sure that the ignition switch and circuit is working properly, as that can also cause the vehicle to not start or respond. If you are still having trouble, a mechanic from YourMechanic can accurately diagnose your starting trouble at your car’s location and can help you get back on the road.
