More than likely it is the alternator not putting out enough to run the car.

That is a very good place to start. You and remove the alternator, and most auto parts stores will check it for you.

Just the change dipstick and the oil in the car and also check if there is any debris in the car as the broken dipstick which may cause damaged to the engine ,You found the problem it was the oil burn which is causing the loss of power ,and also clean the alternator ..


Good luck....

The orange light is probably the pads wear indicator showing that the pads are worn out and the cutting out probably you need your car serviced and tune.

Sounds like a fuel problem , have you changed the fuel filter in a while ? could be the knock sensor or the knock sensor module needs to be replaced.

Sounds like you have a dead battery. Try recharging the battery or get someone with jumper cables to give you a jump. If your battery dies again after driving for at least an hour you likely need a new battery. If the battery in the car is the original, it's time to replace it anyway.

2006 bmw 330i wont start. all lights come on and when button is pushed everything shuts down and then comes back on


Check battery connections if they are good have dealer to check the crank switch that is on the brake pedal. You have to press the brake for the car to crank and if the crank switch is faulty this will happen. Exact same thing happened to a co worker on a 2010 Altima. Everything worked except when she tried to crank the car the lights would go out.
Good Luck.

How to reset the brake pad indicator on a 2004 BMW 330i


if you wore the brake pads too far down and the light is why you had the brakes inspected and replaced then the sensor on the caliper has been worn thru. You will need to replace the part. The light should go of as soon as the tire spins and sees the parts are good.

I was driving and the brake light , abs and airbag light came on. the car was still running , however i think i lost some power , the passenager window would not go up and now I am not able to start , what...


Hi, Same problem - with my Hyundai Getz. Thought I'd pummelled the horn too much. However, I'm told that it might be the alternator. Battery completely died and couldn't be charged - AA man cleaned around the alternator ready for new battery, which seemed to work - advised to get new alternator. Didn't! Battery died again few weeks later, but still some power so that I can jump start the car - all lights on! ABS, airbag, brake - you name it! Also, car is brakig itself when driving - this only occurs when all lights are on. Lights eventually go off, and car resumes back to normal driving again - no more bunny hoping a it brakes, and no more smell of rubber. Have read that low power can be a problem for airbag light, and so checking battery, and alternator is a must. My alternator is now being ordered. Hope this helps. If it was anything else let me know.
