Car wont start


Try checking the battery, it could be dead or almost dead. If it is, you might want to check and see if the alternater is out. If that dosn't work or the battery is fine, then try replacing the starter.

Hard to start

indicator read hot even when cold and just started. took me 2 days
to figure it out before spending money. good luck.
