Dreams in which your car breaks down, your computer crashes or your phone won’t work occur for two possible reasons. First of all, your dreaming mind may be warning you to take precautionary steps, such as installing anti- virus software on your computer or making sure your car is regularly serviced, so as to avert potential problems in the future.
If this isn’t the case, the malfunction could be a symbol for an aspect of yourself that isn’t working properly. A car, for example, could symbolize your energy or drive, and, if it breaks down, your lack of it. Are you in danger of running out of control? If a fuse blows in your dream, are you about to explode with frustration over someone or something?
