Just wondering if you saw your car keys every day . .. .Waxed'05 GT said:Um, yeah... why.
One of them is probably packed from the recent move. The other is hidden at my brother in laws where the car is currently stored.
Looks like the weather is gonna hold out so I can get the car back tomorrow.:thumbsup: Gotta throw the jumper cables in my wife's mom-mobile.

Im off to Richmond for the cup race...lookin to see the Roush cars run good Martin's got to hang on to 10th for the chase! I was at Bristol the other week to see Kenseth winWaxed'05 GT said:Nope, the strip flexes. Think about it... if you gotta get in WITH THE KEY, of course you gotta open the door.
I've done it once already when I stored it for the winter, before I got a trickle charger. I think it even states something about it in the owners manual.
Sounds like good times!MickMach said:thanks Waxed and Stoner....this is good to know whats this "the always off topic thread #2" ?????

It's all good. I believe you, others may not.bigplayrayr said:Honestly I wasn't making fun of you. When I first read your problem Iwas think of ways to get in your car and I didn't think of using the key either. So I had a brain fart as well.
I was just commenting on how much I rely on the key fob, since all my cars for the past ten years or so have had remote locks.
Another thing I had to get used to on my Mustang was manually turning on the headlights. My past seveal cars have also had auto headlamps.
I also panic when the batteries on my TV remote go dead.
Um, for the winter I use a trickle charger. I change the oil late fall and very early spring, even though I am using full syn. I figure more than anything... I'm taking care of any water build up problems. This past winter I started it once every other week to run the a/c, get the tires in a different position, etc by driving it around the block and back into the garage. (only if no snow was on the streets and salt was not present) So blocks may not be a good option after all.Kohaku said:Good to hear it started.
If the hood is popped, can you arm the security system?
If the car is off it's wheels and covered, do you need the alarm on?
Some leave a trickle charger on the battery. It's better for it anyway.
Hardcore will take the battery out to store a car for more than four months.
They'll also change the oil before AND after storing a vehicle.
Yep! I use a cover, trickle charger, and vapor barrier on the floor make sure the a/c is ran and then the heater.Kohaku said:So true.
After a while though, you hear alot of overlapping info.
Some of that seems to be the tried and true stuff that works.
It's commonly used in small private airplanes when stored over the winter. They go in where the spark plug would go and obsorb moisture that enters the combustion chamber in order to avoid corrosion.Kohaku said:What is a pickle plug?
"Just trickle and pickle"
