Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. My name is \*\*\*\*\* \*\*\*\*\* I will do my best to assist you.. I help many customers, so sometimes my replies are delayed, I will respond once available. During this conversation you will be given an automated offer for a phone call. You may accept or decline that offer.I don’t personally offer this service so if you take this another tech may call. Sounds like there is a lot going on here, first thing though you dont want to keep jumping it so you will need to get the battery tested nd either replaced or charged. once you get a new battery in the vehicle the charging system needs to be checked, you may have a few fuses blown so check all of those as well. once all that is verified and your still having issues let me know whats going on and we can go from there.

Ok ty
