Yesterday I mentioned that portable jumper cable to keep in your trunk, and a few days after I got it, it already came in handy.
I was driving home from work and saw a car parked on the side of the street, with the hood up, and cables in hand…the universal sign for “Help!”.
I pull up in front of him, and pull out my fancy looking case, and ask him if he wants to give it a try.
After giving it (and me) a strange look, since we are all used to that second car being there, he said that he’d give it a shot.
We hooked it up to his battery, he gave the engine a start, and less than 90 seconds after I had pulled up I was already driving away, with both our cars in working order.
So go ahead and buy the tools you need to keep your car, and those around you, in running order!
