The electric windows draw their power from the alternator and battery. If your car is shutting off, check the serpentine belt under the hood for tension and wear. If the belt is slick, cracked, or has breaks in it, it should be replaced. A bad belt will slip and the alternator won't put out enough power to operate the engine and windows simulateously.

If the belt is in good shape, take the car to a service station or auto parts store that features free charging system diagnosis to determine if your alternator is weak or if you have a bad battery.

I have a 1999 dodge ceruis. I quit running going down the highway at 70 mph. It was very low of oil. Do the have a ciser shut down system


You are fortunate that the engine still cranks. If it overheated when it shut down it is possible that some of the electrical components may have been burned out.

And if you did permanent damage it is possible that now the engine is not cranking fast enough to start.

Good luck.

The car was being driven and died. It turns over but wont start, and doesn't go into gear. Windows quite working and radio and clock don't come on. Buzzing sound from air bag mode.


Sounds like a power supply issue. Make sure the battery is fully charged and the charging system is working properly. If the ECM senses low battery voltage it will shut down different parts of the electrical system in order to maintain a constant power supply for the necessary electronics

What are the future problems of the BMW 650i?


The future problems? Now that really narrows down the possibilities. The biggest problem is running out of money once the warranty expires. The second biggest problem would be letting the wife or kids drive it.
Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance. These are very high maint. cars.
Electric seat motor and cables should go kaput. As will the drivers side electric window. The rear tailights will get water in them and quit. The oxygen sensor will quit leaving a check engine light on. The Bosch electric fuel pump IN the tank will quit as well, leaving you stranded. Get it replaced every 40-60 thou miles.

Lost all electrical car died wont start


Will it start when you give it a jump or install a good battery? If it does the problem is your alternator. What most likely happened is the alternator quit working while you were driving and the car was relying on the battery directly to keep it going in which the battery completely lost power and shut the car off.
