Cars not starting in the morning is a common issue in cold conditions because low temperatures make batteries produce less current. If it is not the battery then there is a problem with the fuel system which has to be fixed. There are other reasons for cars hesitating to start in the morning, we recommend regular maintenance to avoid such scenarios.

The warning light is the first indication that your car is in trouble. It is recommended that you take the car to the nearest service centre where a technician will check the warning with an OBD. For regularly maintained cars it is probably wire or fuse damage which is an easy fix. In some instances the warning lights could mean trouble, it needs urgent attention and to be fixed ASAP.

First is the driving style, under proper braking you don’t see so much wear, But reckless driving causes more brake damage.
