Hello. From what you describe, it would appear that your vehicle is experiencing some sort of electrical issue. If the issue comes and goes intermittently, then the first thing I would look at is the vehicle's ignition switch. It may be possible that the switch has shorted or failed and is causing your issues. It may also be possible that there is some sort of electrical fault elsewhere, perhaps in the form of damaged or frayed wiring. I would start by checking the ignition switch, and then move on to the electrical system. If you need to have this looked at, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to diagnose the starting issue and electrical problems in order to have this addressed.
