Car died on highway, second time this week
Monday I was driving to work, right before I arrive the red battery light came on. I went back inside and googled it, guessed either bad battery or alternator. Started the drive one, after 10 minutes all sorts of warning lights start coming on, car starts getting sluggish then dies. I noticed the dash lights were getting dimmer and the cr slowly lost all power. Got it towed home and replaced the alternator. Now the battery was dead do I jumped it and everything seemed fine. Then on my test drive the power steering lock warning came on red. So I brought it to my guy and be could. Find anything wrong(see other post). When I started it up to brim it home I noticed the light was gone...? So I figured I'm good to brig the car to work today. Wrong. I'm 5 minutes from work, I had made it 45 miles when the dash began lighting up warnings like a Christmas tree. First the abs, then 4x4, the. Some circle with waves, there were more. Then the car died. I pulled it to the side and heard a clicking sound coming from the glove box/ fuse area. I'm in the tow truck now bringing it back to the shop. Wtf...btw way it's a 2007 328xi with 130,000 miles. I've always loved it but I'm beginning to see red! What's going on? Bad battery? Bad alternator? I bought one from autozone, i know I prob should t have but I was able to get it that day.
