Ok so me being the dumbash I am decided to have fun in my car after a fresh snow fall so I put the car in reverse and floored it cranked it ?

Then I proceeded to yoink the ebrake so I’ve basically done a 180 at this point then my car shuts off so I have to press the brakes shift it into park and restart my car but it struggles to start even though it normally doesn’t and it’s a brand new car so y’all car guys need to explain how bad this is for my car or something oh and the battery light comes on so If im taming a guess it’s probably messing with the alternator or just ruining the alternator

    TYLER!  You flooded the engine, your lucky it restated at all.  And why in hell is this fun to you? That was very foolish to do!

    Likely the battery shifted under the hood and may be touching something metal causing a parasitic drain. Batteries usually don't get a lot of mechanical support and can slide easily in their trays.

    If it is a new car take it to the dealer - should still be under warranty and they have no way of knowing you were jerking it around in the snow.

    Cranked it. What does that mean? Sounds like you wrecked it. Call a mechanic and have him fix it and then sell it. You are a menace to society and should use public transportation to protect yourself and the people around you.

    Even an old lady like me knows better than to do that. Intentional damage like that may not be covered. Take a pile of cash to the dealers with you.

    My guess is that you have damaged an engine sensor. If the car still won't start or starts and stall out as soon as you try to put it in gear. You'll need to have it towed to the dealership, assuming it is still under warranty.

    It would be easier if you just went to the hospital instead and had a new brain installed.

    Do you have a check engine light on? If there is, then you should attach a scan tool to it. It's most likely a MAF (mass air flow) sensor malfunction. But that's just a guess, the actual engine code will tell you.

    Go to a hospital and get your head examined.
