had a problem earlier today with our trooper. my wife reported that it
would not start but that all the lights - radio and windows were working
fine w/ the key in the on position. I went and checked it out after work
and sure enough everything seemed fine except no ignition - no sounds even -
just dead. I cleaned the battery terminals and tried it again and still
so we had it towed to the local garage and there I turned the key one more
time and guess what - yes - it started!
Interesting fact that might have something to do with this: a few months ago
the key was stuck in the ignition just before you are able to retrieve it so
we drove around for a few weeks leaving the key in place until we were ready
for service. until one time it came out - we have been using the spare key
since. when the trooper was on the flat bed the key once again got stuck,
but came out at the garage??!!
anyone have any ideas? should I phone cartalk this weekend?
