The other day when I got off work all the power of my car shut off. The dash lights off, stereo turned all the way off (no lights at all, or time) my head lights barely were on and they flickered. My car never shut off either. So I drove home fine. But I had no electrical. And then in the morning I tried to start it again and it started fine, everything turned on, but when I drove 2 blocks everything shut off again. This is my first car and ive had it for almost 2 years.
Do you
