This problem is so small and insignificant in the bigger picture but it's making me sad and stressing me out big time. I can't get my car out of park.
It started with my traction control and abs brakes warning lights coming on Tuesday on my way home from work. Then when i started the car again Wednesday it was fine. Thursday on the way to work and going back home the lights turned on. Never when the car started but sometime on my drive, usually when stopped at a light. This morning i picked up my boyfriend and then dropped him off at the place where he was getting winter tires because he didn't want to wait and the light came on after the car had been running a few minutes each time. Then when I went to go to work today i couldn't get the car out of park and the lights would come on in less than a minute but after all the startup tests passed. The boyfriend managed to get it out of the garage and onto the driveway but we couldn't get it moving after that. He was nice enough to drive me to work. so somehow i have to get it moving tomorrow morning first thing so that i can get it to the shop and talk to someone. Im supposed to have 'date night' at the greenhouse for a herb garden class tomorrow which depending on how long it takes me to get the car moving or the tow truck if i can't get it moving we might not make the class. Hopefully i don't get called out tonight, I'll have to steal the boyfriends car if i do. And i have no idea how I'm going to get to and from work on the weekend, the bus doesn't go to the airport. Or how I'll get to acupuncture on Tuesday, i could probably find a bus for that one but with my sensitivities I'm terrified of public transportation and cabs are worse than busses here. Hopefully they can fix it soon and i won't have to rent a car to go to work next week. but when i called about the lights on my dash the soonest they could get me in was the 22nd so i don't know if they'll even look at my car before then. Stress! luckily one of the guys at work is willing to drive me home tonight.
Stupid car has left me stranded every fall for the last 3 years now, and it will be 7 years old in December.
