Default Stranded... AGAIN

This sucks. On my way to class in the TGP. Apparently the battery cable wiggled its way loose so the battery didn't charge the entire drive. Came to a stop and the car died. Won't restart.


Waiting 45 min for a friend to drive out from Danville.

Sounds like you need to hit Costco and pick a battery jumper pack for $80! It'* saved my butt many a times!

I second that. I used to carry one around before I installed the second battery.

I didn't even bother going to class. By the time I got a jump, I was an hour and a half late for class with another 45 minutes to drive....

Yea, it was funny. I had my laptop with me and my phone. So I pulled out my laptop to get on the internet and the battery was almost dead (from tuning). So I pulled out my phone, and it was almost dead. I had 3 dead batteries.
