After being a HA-free member of the club for about 3 years, I have finally been busted! At the conclusion of the Sacramento International Auto Show, I was putting away my chair and other personal items. The hood was still up, so I decided to close the hood and wait to drive out. After closing the hood, I was reminded that it might be a good idea to re-connect the battery to the car….might actually help it start! Sadly, it didn’t! Somehow I managed to kill my battery sitting still…..thanks to “bad-Dan’s” handy-dandy portable battery, I was able to get Sybil started and drove away! Lesson learned…..make sure you have clean battery terminals and don’t get busted trying to start a car with the battery disconnected!
