So the battery died, which isn't unusual considering my sound system is slightly draining my battery somewhere. Went to jump start the car and as soon as I take off the jumper cables, it dies. So I figure its the alternator. Replaced the alternator, now the car still won't stay running AND my radio is now dead. Kind of at a loss here I'm not sure what happened
Doesnt let me turn the key on
It won't engage when put into each gear, it's an automatic an I know nothing about cars an cannot afford to be without one right now! I put 2 wet of fluid in an it didn't work, it's not leaking either.I did have the wiring harness try to fry itself the day before this started an under the hood right next to where you put train fluid in there is a Lil black cover thing with wires going into the top that has a cracked in it but not sure what it is! With all of the electrical problems could it be something like that or what other problems could cause it to do this?
