The Check Engine tells you that something is wrong about
your ride. Get your ride check for error code and take necessary steps to
resolve the issue. Also you can post the error codes so that we can help you to
solve the issue. Battery light lit means that your battery needs to be charged
or the electrolyte in the battery is low. Also it can be possible that the
battery needs replacement. Last the oil light alerts you to change the engine
oil. The engine oil prevents the engine components from wearing due to friction
and suppresses the heat generation keeping the metal parts in proper working
The car is stalling/shutting down while driving and you are just guessing what the problem is.
It may well be that there is an issue with the engine management system , among others.
Don't mess around. Get the car into the dealer and have the issues properly diagnosed and the rectified. Yes it will cost you some money but you cannot expect to run a 6 year old vehicle reliably without incurring significant maintenance costs.
when you say stalls, do you mean shut off of just get low on power?
my check engine light comes on and then oil press light come on and the car shuts off but the lights and music stayed on.
if its that the car needs oil and shuts down to protect itself but it will turn on minutes later.
if stalls periodically, shows check engine light and the car looses a bit of power, in the engine, :
1. your coolant may be having problems getting to the engine in the way it was met to get to the engine
2. the belt might be a bit off and that could be why you get the slipping feeling
3. your exhaust may be a bit clogged. or your engine may need cleaning
i had both problems my car shut off and my engine was slipping. my EXPENSIVE but great machanic found out it was my oil level and my coolant was rusty and not getting to the engine. now she drives like the original 97 olds 88
Your battery is discharged. Jump start the thing and leave it running for a bit (outside, of course) to re-charge the battery. Check the interior lights, etc. because someone probably left an overhead light or something like that on.
The battery has discharged enough such that it will not start the car, but not enough such that it will not light up the little ***** light bulbs on the dash, etc.
