Last Fri night (10/20) after work, car wouldn't start. About 7pm. Keyfob didn't unlock; first clue. Use key to unlock, get in, try to start. Nothing.
Call OnStar and arrange for tow early Sat morning. Über home.
Sat morning, Über to car, remember to take a jump-start lithium battery with me: https://www.halo2cloud.com/products/hal ... acdc-58830
Jump start car, horn starts honking, startling the crap out of me. DIC shows all kinds of error messages. Hmph.
OnStar says tow co. will arrive in 30 min. After one hour, OnStar calls and says "bad news, tow co. will be 80 min.".
I cancel the tow because I have someplace to be in 5 min (Decatur Beer Fest! I'm serving beer in the VIP section. Always a rockin' good time!). Arrange for tow Mon morning 730AM. OnStar says they'll text me 90 min prior.
Mon morning, 6AM I'm up and waiting. No text. Call Onstar at 630AM. They've entered the info into the computer incorrectly, thus no text. They setup a new tow request. Tow should arrive by 10AM.
Tow arrives 2PM. Sigh. Chevy dealer can't give me a loaner.
Tues, Chevy dealer calls. Come get a loaner, we have to keep your car for a while. Technician says "negative battery terminal leaked some acid, melted negative battery cable, must replace both, 3 days to find the parts".
They take me to Enterprise Rental, who gives me...wait for it...a Suburban. Ginormous fully optioned beached whale. Jeepers.
