Cussin' and sputtering for couple days.

by MO_Thoughts2 on June 10, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Purchased used car for my daughter last week. Had a spare key made and used it .... it has tripped the security feature. It won't start now. We've tried everything that the internet and Auto Zone guys have suggested. It's getting towed tomorrow to the guy who put in the new ignition cylinder a couple days before we bought it. When I called him, his answer was "Hmmm, didn't think that car had the pass lock feature. I might have ..... just have it towed to me tomorrow. Meanwhile, I'll do a little research."

Can you feel the confidence I have in this guy ???? Grrrrrr............
