My 96 Toyota Corolla just stopped starting. I drove it up to school. Then when I got out of class that afternoon, I got in my car, turned the ignition and nothing happened. No clicking or anything. I did not leave my lights on; it was the middle of the day. I checked the light switch just in case. When I turned the lights on, they did not go on, and there was a buzzing sound coming from the dash. I got a jump start and the car started right up, no delay at all. I’ve had a dead battery before and this experience was not like that at all.
Then, when I got home (about 15 miles of highway driving), I turned off the car. I immediately tried to start it again and the same thing happened. Absolutely nothing. Not even a clicking sound from the starter.
I am baffled. Any ideas what I should expect when I have it towed to the mechanic? Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
