Going to do that in the morning.. it happened late last night and by time I got to my buddy's today. I just towed it to my parents. Just trying to see what ppl think so I can start w that. But thanks for your response I'll check those first. If it's not that any other suggestions


when you try to start it and it clicks and then if you turn off the key and try to restart again right away does it click again? or is there nothing till you let it sit for a bit
