When Your Car Won’t Start

If you turn the key in the ignition and nothing happens, don’t automatically assume your battery is dead. While a dead battery is a common cause of a failed start, there are other things you should look at as well. Check your fuses to make sure they are in good working order, then check for corrosion on the battery that is blocking the connections. If the battery is clean and functional, the problem could lie with the ignition switch. Contact your mechanic to eliminate possibilities and see what needs to be replaced.
