  1. If you hear nothing but silence, you may have a dead battery. This is either because it’s time to replace the battery, or if lights were left on, which then drained the battery.
  2. If your car starts and then stalls, and squeals when you try to operate the heat or radio, it may be a bad alternator.
  3. If there is no sound when you turn the key, but the dash lights turn on, then it may be the ignition switch.
