I'm throwing in the towel....


Previous Entry I'm throwing in the towel.... Oct. 10th, 2010 @ 08:15 am Next Entry
This has NOT been a good weekend. It started Thursday evening, and has just gotten worse. First the soaping stuff, then the phone stuff...and now? Now my Jeep is dead. :bangs head:

We had to take Himself to Saturday School, since he had 2 zeros. Oh, I could have kept him home, and let him keep the 0s, but I wanted to him to suffer and maybe learn to actually turn his work *in*, so off to school we went. Jeep was fine, then.......

We picked him up at noon, and headed into town. We took the scenic route, looking at the pretty Victorian houses and talking about our "perfect" set-up (don't get me wrong - I LOVE my property! - but SG wants more land. I was led here, so I'm in no hurry to move...but if led to, I will) - Jeep ran fine.

Got to Tractor Supply (needed birdseed for the "grouchy old aunt" (HER words, not ours!). Wandered around in there a bit - they're remodeling, so I couldn't find what we needed right away. Got back to the Jeep...and nothing. The clicker wouldn't lock/unlock the doors, you put the key in the ignition and you'd get the Accessories, but it wouldn't *start* :bangs head:

On the bright side, Randall Noe Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep shares the parking lot with TSC......(and yes, I have Thanked Yah for it! This could have happened while we were out and about.......MILES away from civilization.)

On the not-so-bright-side, after 3 hours, we finally got someone who cared at the dealership - he called the Service Manager.......on the phone with the SM, he came over to look at Libby and try and diagnose over the phone. He got in, turned the key, and I heard "Huh. That's Weird!" :bangs head:

3 of the dealership guys helped SG push Libby over to the car part of the parking lot....where she sits. We are to call Monday AM (they claim the service department is open, even though it's a holiday) and they will see what's up. :sigh:

Murphy can go jump off of a short pier.........

the downside of good luck

It's Murphy's dratted way of balancing out all the good luck in scoring prezzies for Hanukkah. On the up side, at least your car died next to the dealership! :)

From what you described, it sounds like a dead battery. But that doesn't explain the quizzical "Huh."

Nope - some sort of "module" in the steering column went out......it's a total mess. it reminded me why I swore I'd never buy a Jeep again all those years ago...
