Probably the alternator died, then used up all the power in your battery to keep the car running.
Have your alternator tested and maybe replaced. The battery needs tested also.

Hope this helps

99 Olds Cutlass, new ignition problems


Obviously the mechanic is not getting down to the real
issue for some reason
Try a different shop
I can only guess but it sounds like you may need
a new ignition switch & then the proper adjustment
if one is required
You may be able to dajust yours to work ok if that
applies.
Seems odd the mechanic spends all that time in one area
& doesn't have a solution
You may have a bad door switch as well

Battery warning light, handbrake light going on and off


You could have a alternator problem. When the alternator stops charging the battery you are running on just the battery. When the battery gets weak a lot of weird things starts happening. Have your alternator tested.
