I got Haynes. And followed the motor solenoid test, neutral park switch test, and the ignition switch test.I was on travel, car (Accord in this case) wouldn't start next to a mechanic shop.
I held the key in full start position while mechanic hit the starter sharply with a hammer (might have used an extension to reach it). It started, they replaced the starter, all's been good.
Understand A and B.Now I have no confidence in the car. I drive around with a jack stand and a jumper wiring in the trunk, just in case. Can't afford anymore tow truck fees.
I used to subscribe to AAA for many years, but they really pissed me off when I tried to use the service for first time.Understand A and B.
On B, suggest join AAA via phone call. Same day membership benefits as long as car is not disabled at the time.
Upgrade one level from basic(*) and AAA provides you 3 roadside assistance/tows per year
up to 100 miles each. Not just your car, but any car you're in. Best deal around for some of us.
Also I'd additionally carry a hammer and an extension so you can reach the starter for a blow...with help of co-worker.
It's not price, it's coverage for me. I and my sons have used AAA 7 or 10 times and been more than fully pleased,I used to subscribe to AAA for many years, but ... I waited over 3 hours.
And I live in the 3rd largest US city. Beware, there's a reason they're cheap.
Houston. My coworker has experienced similar long delay too.It's not price, it's coverage for me. I and my sons have used AAA 7 or 10 times and been more than fully pleased,
but I'm in a lesser population density area, not in big city. So, your city is 3rd largest, what's the name?
Only time I waited more than an hour was 11PM, me stopped at rest area on top of mmountain pass
with motorcycle having a flat, and the tow truck came from a town that was a full driving hour away.
