I originally had thought my vehicle needed a new alternator and who knows what else. But Mr Cunningham helped me out big-time by emailing me back stating "it sounds like a bad battery to me" and gave me some additional good scoop. Considering the battery was only 6 months old I hadn't considered that but he was right! Just a bad battery and his saved me towing expenses, time and $$$. Thanks so much for the free advice!!
