Stuck on an icy hill, after trying to go up it.

Asked by justsomenewb Jan 11, 2017 at 04:31 AM about the 2015 Ford Focus S

Question type: General

Car got stuck on ice on a hill and I tried to get off of it, but the whole road was
covered, we just got hit with a weird winter advisory. I didn't accelerate over 17 mph,
don't see how it's my fault, even though I tried probably about five minutes to get up
the damn hill. I put the emergency break on and put it in park.

Few hours later I crossed through the neighbors yards ( road is full of ice) and to
my surprise, the battery light was on, car wouldn't fully start, abs was also on (anti
brake locks) or w/e it's called and some fluid symbol.

I'll get it service checked in the am, must be some security feature, wheel won't
even turn
