Q: My car won't turn on

asked by on August 05, 2017

My car won't start sometime it come on . Or my key remote won't work either

My car has 60000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

The first thing to try is to put in new batteries in the key FOB and see if this helps. If it does then replace batteries in all extra keys also. If it still has issues then you may have a problem in the anti-theft system and will need to have it diagnosed and scanned then tested for possible causes.
