I went...

    Hi, I bought this car around 2 weeks ago and everything was fine, but this morning I was on my way to work, and the CD player switched itself off, then I noticed the indicators weren't working. Then all the electrics stopped working completely and the car cut out, and rolled to a stop. The...
