A couple of days ago I was driving on the highway when the oil lamp indicator starting flashing, slowly then faster, until it turned on. About half a minute after that I sensed a loss of power in the car and then the battery lamp went on and the car died out. I managed to coast to the shoulder of the highway. I tried to start the car again, but the car would not start, no turning over and, ultimately, not even clicking (the starter). As time passed, the flasher lights went out. I had to tow it.
I do not know if it is related, but around 5 weeks before, the check engine light went on for a couple of weeks then went out without showing again. I did not get it checked, so I don't know what codes got registered. But then, why would the light turn off, just like that?
have the same problem?
