Wednesday, July 2, 2014 :: Q...
I haven’t tried to start my car since early December 2013. Back then I had to jump start it. If the motor was turned off– it would not start again unless jumped again.
I knew this was the battery, and earpiece confirmed that the surveillance equipment on the car drains the battery. In Dec. 2013, they knew there was a problem because their equipment signals were dying and told me when the problem first happened.
My mother purchased a new car in Jan. 2014 so her old one is available for my use, however since we only have a two car garage– I have not tried to start my car since Dec. 2013. Her new car has all the latest gizmos and I rarely use it… nor would I try to jump my car with it. It also gets her garage position.
With everyone gone for the 4th– I put her old car in the garage last night — since she took her new one with her, and this morning decided to try my car.
It fired right away– and the engine sounds great. Yes, when I turned if off it would not start without the jumper cables– but I am so happy it started and sounded so good.
That car has been garaged most of its life, I am the original owner and it has about 151,000 miles on it.
It is a convertible RX7 and it rides like a low slung sedan because most of the convertible roof is hard. The rear window is a real window and the center piece that separates from the rest of the roof and comes off. Its like a removable sunroof— and its hard.
I love my car and have missed it. I cannot tell you how happy this morning’s test has made me.
I have replaced the battery in my car before. But it is kind of hard to get the leads off. I did not want to take it to the shop– because too many want me to cry these days.
The reason for this post– just to let everyone know that as of July 2nd, 2014 there were no other problems with my car other than a very dead battery. The interior lights won’t even come on without another battery charging my dead battery.
Is this important? My car is 24 years old and they no longer make it. Yes. I last tested early Dec. 2013 and it started right up July 2, 2014. And my surveillance could see everything….
Earpiece noise has suggested some would love to help me restore it since the engine is still in great condition. If I ever get out of this– it won’t be the first thing I do– but I would love to have the car fully restored. Right now I am just happy it is safe and garaged.
