sing by using that device. now this thing happen two time in last two day. today i was able
to rid of those sing by moving the gear stick randomly to N D and R. it doesn't give me
problem in starting in the morning but it just randomly doesn't start. i called AA roadside
service today and guy said some how battery is drained. He wasn't able to tell me cause

Sound,s like battery has bad cell,it will hold charge,then loose it,go have the battery load tested,it will show you if it is bad.
