Earlier in the day driving to work the left blinker was flashing very fast. It went back to normal a few minutes later when I arrived at work. Later on my way home my car suddenly stalled at a stop sign without warning and now won't start.
My car has 80000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi - it is possible that all of this is due to an electrical problem - a bad ground (or burned out bulb) for example will make turn signals blink fast. It could also cause a "no start" problem. But your scenario sounds more like the crankshaft position sensor or coil has failed. First task is to check for problem codes - whether the Check Engine light is on or not. Also check for spark at the plugs. I recommend an engine stalling inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
