We all pile into my car this morning and it wouldn't start. Just really enhanced my mood. Fortunately my wife's care does so I am able to go get the kids to school. When I returned I decided to try to charge it with the little Anker charger that I bought a few months back. After unsuccessfully trying I read that it only charges engines up to 3.0 liters. My 3.5 liter engine was too much.
Just last week I had canceled my Mercedes MBrace subscription, which for some reason I thought was the service that included roadside assistance. Off to Walmart to pick up some jumper cables. After several attempts to jump start my car, the only result I could achieve was a very brief and unsatisfying set of clickings.
I called the dealership who informed me that much go my ignorance, I was still covered under Mercedes roadside assist. I guess my driveway is on the side of a road (or a rather minor street). Technician arrived in under an hour and ended up replacing the battery.
I guess all is well that ends well.
