My car will start and run but nothing else works Sign In

Hi there.
I have a Daihatsu Charade 2005. Only 58000 km. Sometimes the car will start and run but nothing else will work. Not the lights, power steering and if I drive it then the indicator on the speed dash goes flying up and down. I left the car running for a half hour before and it worked okay. I'm currently sitting by the side of the road now seeing if that will work again. I also have a thermostat with h beside it icon now appearing on the dash.

Hmm when I popped the hood there was a slight smell and it looked like the coolant was kinda bubbling.

This car not sold to the US so limited for specifics. It seems like what you would expect if the belt for accessories on the engine broke for any reason and nothing it operates works or would. It would overheat and you may have caused problems on top of whatever reason the belt failed if so,

WTF? You can't tell if the car is overheated?
