MOFO, SOB, WTF!!!!!!!!!!
I started to wonder if someone had stole my battery or some, because a dead battery isn't completely dead and I should have at least been able to turn on the radio. So I popped the hood and everything looked like it was there, so now it was time to use my well tuned troubleshooting skills. I used to work on all my cars before they became computerized and I've been in electronics for almost 40 years, so I figured I had a shot at finding out what was wrong. So I got my volt meter and got to work.
The battery read 12.45 volts, so that was fine, so it might be a fuse. I opened the fuse box and found the main power fuse for the car. It tested fine too. So it must be a a bad connection somewhere. Remember last Saturday when my car died? They replaced the battery, alternator, etc. There was only one thing that could be wrong then! I checked the battery terminal connections and the negative battery cable was loose. I moved it around, back and forth a few times and popped the trunk with the remote. SUCCESS!!
I went back inside the house, got a wrench and tightened the bolt on the battery. It really was quite loose. The girl that worked on my car just forgot to tighten it. No foul, no harm! Even I made a mistake once. That was the time I thought I was wrong, but I really wasn't. ;-)
