Yep it was running. The battery was dead so I jumped it and went immediatly to replace it. I stopped at Sears because it was on my way.
Haven't had any other issues.
The first battery didn't work? I haven't had this experience before, but the sears guy acted as though that was normal; got a second NEW battery hooked it up, also put my old battery on their charger.
I had my back turned for a few minutes at their computer/getting paperwork at this time.
With new Die Hard my Car cranks but won't start. Oh and they said they were too busy to help me. I asked for a different battery, but they said no. NO? And then they dissapeared working so so very hard!
I called my mechanic and he told me what was happening was totally wrong. He was also too busy to come over, only thing he could think was to tow it over to him.
I just couldn't see spending over $200. When it had to be something simple. So I checked everything I could get at. This is interesting because All the employees at this Sears auto place are ignoring me, and I'm borrowing their tools, I also went and checked the old battery, (which had charged fully by this time) took it off the charger (employees only area) hooked it up, (it cranked but didn't start (and the battery lost the charge quickly). I Put the NEW die hard in, again. NADA.
I had stopped to purchase a new battery at 2 O'Clock, gave up and called a taxi at 6 PM after pushing it into a parking spot (I locked it and kept my keys). I took a taxi home.
Next day when I called them the man on the phone told me they had "been working on my car and determined the problem was the ignition". My response was (LOL) "without keys"?
Then he asks me for the keys so they can diagnose the problem! LOLOL
So I'm a bit stuck, mechanics is not my preferred area of expertise. And coming up with the proper question so I can solve this has now changed:
What did the Sear's guy do that involves the ignition and would cause the car not to start?
