Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Is it acting like a possible dead or weak battery or have you tried to recharge the battery or jump start the vehicle at all?

Have you tried to lock and unlock the doors with the key or remote to see if it starts then at all?

Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.

Tried to jump the vehicle last night but it did not work. Tried all of the above last night. I had to leave the car at the hockey rink. Unfortunately the rink had the car towed to a service shop and they are looking at it now. Im all set. Can you please refund my card as the jump did not work. I do not want a membership here so please refund the mastercard.
