It happened again today and I was stuck outside a restaurant near my house. Oh no, it didn't explode this time. It just died. My son and I had dropped into the restaurant for a quick meal and when we were ready to leave, my car will not start.
I have shared here before that I did have problems starting my car, and I am now not sure if it is a starter or battery problem. On top of that, my hubby just informed me a week ago that AAM, the auto assist services that we have subscribed to, has wound up and we no longer have their services.
And there I was in the car, not sure of what to do. My hubby was with some foreign clients and was not able to attend to me at that time.
I then remembered that when I changed my car insurance provider, the agent did mention something about an auto assistance services that I can use. I quickly called him, got the number and arranged for a technician to come check the car.
Alas, it is the battery after all, which only lasted one year! I hope this new one will last longer.
But the next question is this: was the problem of getting my car started a battery problem in the first place and not the key lock cylinder?
