Appears the battery just doesn't have enough juice to start the car.

Trying to get a replacement today.

My dad ran a racing series in Florida and I helped him for like six months. I've replaced more batteries (and changed oil more times) than I care to remember.

I hear ya, I grew up in a repair shop.

Sunday I'll be putting a new starter, transmission, clutch, idle control valve, and power steering pump on my car.

It's gonna be schweet!

I will have you know Mr. Scot that my wife's car had the exact same problem two hours after you posted this. I'm watching you.

Update. Was indeed the battery. Got it replaced Friday and all is well. They checked the alternator at the time and found it to be good.

I'm mobile again :)

(or at least I would be if I weren't down with a sinus infecton) :(
