Hello! I'm sorry you are having car troubles.

I have found this is a pretty common problem with a lot of people. Here are some possible causes of this problem you are having:
-You may need a new battery
-There is something wrong with the cables that connect the battery to the starter. This is the thickest cable in your car’s electrical system, and carries the most current. It is also the most susceptible to corrosion.
-It could be a problem with the ignition cylinder or a passlock issue

I hope this was helpful and I wish you the best of luck!

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
