TRIED TO START DRIVING THE VEHICLE AGAIN TO GET IT OFF THE HIGHWAY VEHICLE WAS DIFFICULT TO DRIVE COULDN'T REACH SPEED VERY SLOW - DID NOT DRIVE PROPERLY. SAFELY PULLED OVER AGAIN AND SHUT VEHICLE OFF. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND OTHER LIGHTS ON DASH STAYED ON. COULD NOT GET KEY OUT OF IGNITION IT STAYED IN THE 2ND SWITCH STUCK (NOT RUNNING). TOW TRUCK DRIVER HAD TO COME AND TOW BECAUSE VEHICLE WOULDN'T START NOR WOULD THE KEY COME OUT. FINALLY TOW TRUCK DRIVER WAS ABLE TO GET THE KEY OUT OF THE IGNITION AND TOWED IT TO A SHOP. NEXT DAY SHOP TURNED ON THE VEHICLE AND COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING WRONG. DEALER COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH ELECTRICAL PANEL. RAN NUMEROUS TEST ON VEHICLE INCLUDING DEALER DRIVING VEHICLE AND STILL NOTHING COULD BE FOUND. THEY SAY THEY CAN'T FIX ANYTHING BECAUSE NOTHING IS WRONG WITH MY CAR.
