Hello, my name is***** will be helping you out! I have over thirteen year of experience in the automotive industry for numerous different makes & models. I enjoy doing what I do, it is my life.

Is it possible that the battery drained on you? No head lights operating? Is it possible to try to get jumper cables on it?
