01 gets a new battery while the 99's still marches on...

Went to move the gray car out of the garage last Friday afternoon and all I got was a bunch of clicks from the solenoid. Put a charger on it overnight but didn't take a charge.

Yesterday I had it towed in and policy calls for them to attempt to charge it before replacing the battery. They couldn't charge it either.

The 99 is still running off its original battery. Something to be said for year round driving

Frankly, I think the gray car was just jealous. The black car is in ICU, the X5 went in for its Inspection I last week so the gray car wanted a ride on a stretcher too!
