Interview Answer

2 Answers


Started with the basics of did any lights come on when the door opened, does the car make any noises when the key is inserted into the ignition, is the car in park or neutral? Does any lights appear on the dashboard while trying to start the car? Electrical issues with battery would result in lost of power, clicking noise while trying to start, the battery light would glow. If the key is inserted and the chime is heard with the door open, the ignition VAT systems is working allowing the fuel pump and starter to engage.
