Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

what are all of the lights? and have you had the check engine light checked for any codes?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I see the battery light goes on when I tried to start it. No we haven't done it. This is the first time it came up.
Expert:  TECHPRO49 replied 1 month ago.

ok first things first we need to verify voltage at battery and when trying to start do you have a volt meter?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It only goes up to 11
Expert:  TECHPRO49 replied 1 month ago.

well that need to be fixed first, the battery either needs to be charged or replaced, any local auto parts store can test the battery and or charge it for you for free

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
We are currently waiting for a friend who could assist us on charging the battery.
Expert:  TECHPRO49 replied 1 month ago.
