I have a ford think. I just bought it in October

Customer Question
I have a ford...

I have a ford think. I just bought it in October and,drove,it very little and know nothing about theses carts. 2 weeks ago I bought a cover for it and put it outside and,plugged it,in. Yesterday I went out turned the key to drive it and it won't do,anything. It has been in the 20s here some. Have I screwed something up?

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?

Yes, I can turn the steering wheel. I will need to look closer at the key.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Th!nk?

2004 I think. It has new batteries.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Th!nk yourself? What have you tried so far?

I haven't tried anything. Just tried moving,it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I was told to leave it plugged in all the time. Is this,true??

Hey how are you,I will try to help you with this issue

the plugged in at all times is correct ,but being that cold ,if one of the batterie was weak, ectreme temp could have killed it
