Car wont start?

My car just stopped working in the middle of the road and it wont start anymore. Anytime I try to start it, it just makes a clicking noise and all the indicator lights go down. Also, I dont know if this helps, but the car is on the ON mode, the battery, oil and maintenance indicators come on.

    Battery is nearly dead. This is likely from an alternator that is bad. Charge the battery and see if the car starts and runs, if so have the alternator checked.

    your battery is dead. you probably need an alternator. if the car died while driving, the car was running off the battery and when the battery discharged, the car died. the alternator keeps the battery charged and provides electrical power to the vehicle when it's running.

    You either have a bad connection between the battery and starter or a bad starter.

    Sounds like alternator is bad and killed the battery.

    Not likely a starter problem, that would not have caused your car to cut off.
