I have been have problems with my car for awhile. The clock would keep resetting and the radio would shut off by its self for a second. But this morning when I was backing the car out of the driveway it shut off. When I restarted it I had no problems it started fine, but then like 30 min. Down the road the cars engine light came on.

Do you
have the same problem?
