Bought my car secondhand in April last year.
Have had no problems. Until yesterday. After doing some errands, got back to the car 2 hours later and went to start it and it would not start.
The lock, lights, windows etc still works but it would not start (the dash board lights did not and my button to open the car was acting up).Upon lifting the hood, the fans were running and when I checked the temperature gauge it went past HOT. But when I took the key out of the ignitiion it went back to zero. Had a friend look it over and he checked everything. The batteries were good, fuse etc. Even jump started it but it was irregular and did not would not charge.
In the end had to get it towed. Is it the computer or what?
PS. I am from Dandenong Victoria in Australia
