Sounds like you have either an igniton switch problem or your alternator is bad. Take it to the nearest auto part store and they will check your alternator and codes for free. Good luck.

Have a 2012 hyundai sonota and i pumped e85 into the tank last night, drove my car today now the check engine light is on. I don't think my car takes E85 but I didn't know that til after I p


If its running o.k. Than I would bet the check engine light is on because there are codes for system too lean. Burn off the tank of e-85 as soon as you can, than fill with regular unleaded. The light should go out after several drive cycles after everything has gone back to normal or you can swing by ou local parts store and see if they can clear the codes

Brakes are very touchy after sitting


I thought the caprice had disk on all wheels?? But it sounds like it's time for the rear brakes to be serviced. If you do have rear drums the pads could be worn and the shoes are slipping and grabing. You can try backing up in a empty parking lot and backing up and giving full brake application. About the 7th application would reset the brakes, if that does not help then the breaks need to be serviced. Good kick
