I had a problem with my car's fuel pump for the last few weeks, It won't go above 20 miles/hour and if I try to accelerate I would get a strange sound coming from under the hood.
The last time the car was operational is when I went to the garage to check the car and ask for an estimation of the repairing cost, the worker told me to come back in a few days as they were out of fuel pumps at the time.
On my way home I started to notice a strange smell, then suddenly a grey smoke came through the AC vents into the inside of the car.
I stopped the car and went to check out what was going under the hood, there was still a grey smoke but I couldn't locate the exact place it came from.
I went to see if the car would start but to my surprise I found out that the dashboard lights were all ON even though I had the key in my hand!
I then inserted the key and tried to start the car but I got nothing, there wasn't even any sound that would indicate I'm trying to start the car!
I then towed the car to a garage and for the past 2 weeks they haven't been able to figure out what's the problem with my car!
The problem of dashboard lights being all on drained the battery.
Your kind help and expertise on this matter is highly appreciated.
