The blue truck died. I got to the end of the driveway when I KNEW I had not locked an important door. I went back inside and locked it. Getting back in the truck yielded "Click." "Click."
I called the backup team to cover mom and dad's. Then I started trouble shooting.
The terminal to the positive battery post was loose. It would not tighten. It was stripped.
|Only two-ish threads of engagement into lead. Not good.|
|The corners were worn off the bolt head and the round was scarred from channel-locks. Not the first time this has been an issue, I would guess.|
Total time elapsed, 35 minutes.
Thanks for the hand with mom-and-dad, M&T.
