I stopped at a local discount auto shop on my way home after work to
pick up some bolts for my front license plate. After not finding what
I was looking for, I got in my car and it wouldn't start or even turn
over! No power, nada. At first, I thought it was the infamous
"ignition switch" which I'm planning on replacing at the Mihnea Tuning
Session (which I was now panicking that was not going to be able to
attend!) with Paul K. and co. A quick test of the radio and power
locks told me that this was not the case. After running in to get a
screwdriver, I popped up the back seat and saw that my negative battery
terminal was actually BROKEN and coming off the post of my battery!
$1.56, 10 minutes later, and several trips back in and out of the store
and I was back in business. The happy news for the day - sometimes it
actually *IS* the cheap fix!
Damn. Your care biffed it AT the autoparts store? WTF? I'd kill for that
to happen. Sweet you fixed it, would have sucked for it to be something so
bid you had to bag your Sat. slot here.
And, hilarious, 2 //S-slaps from your '95 for you in the last week. The
week to it's impending Mihnea-ify-ifon-ification-ionization-ism. Think your
car's trying *hopelessly* to tell you something there Evan. It's the Audi
Gods, beating their chests, threatening their wrath... "I dare Thee to mod
Thy!!!", and giving you a rescuerope from starting your very first step onto
You're hopeless f'd now, so it is said so it is done...
