For battery failure...at a cost of 99 dollars I purchased a digital display Schmuacher battery charger. It will fully charge dead batter in less than 30 minutes. Or, jump start the car with a 5 minute super charge. It works! There are even more powerful units running on lithium batteries. Either or, a must have for the newer 911's battery failures.
