Yea so I get out of my only class today, head to the car. Turn the key and......click click click click click click :cry:.......ok, look under the hood at the battery.......hmm a little corroded, try forcing it on to the terminal more......bang bang bang with a tape measure (I couldn't find any other blunt object).....click click click.......after several tries I just decided to give it a kick start, Started no problem. Got it tested, stupid pepboys said the battery was good, then bad, then good, then bad. Now it's replaced, lets see if it worked.

Umm, better question: Why were you looking under my car to test my battery? Last time I checked the battery was much more accesible from the top and raising the car was not needed! :crazy:
