Q: Issues on removing my key from the ignition

asked by on

My car suddenly refused to function as normal, when I checked it I noticed the dash board lights and AC lights where all dim, so I tried removing the key but it wasn't responding, so I don't really know what could be the problem, please help me out because the car is making me spend so much money My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi, thanks for writing in. This sounds like you may have a faulty alternator. I would recommend using a multi meter to test its voltage. Alternators should always read higher than 14 volts. If this is not the issue, it is likely you have an electrical issue that could also include replacing your ignition switch. I would enlist the assistance of qualified professional that specializes in electrical systems who can help you diagnose the issue.
