well today started out great i was ontime with all my cakes had them coming in and out of the oven fast, no mistakes, finished the rest of the fondant work all before noon then time to go to a meeting and boom the car craps out. I stop to get gas before meeting up with a customer and when i go to get back into my car the key will not turn, the steering wheel then locks up and nothing.
I had ppl pulling up behind me to wait to pump the gas had my 12yr old son tell them my car isnt working to please go to another all while im rippingmy dash off. Then some Butt blows his horn behind me yelling go, I stick my head out the car and yell do you not see the flashers, all my doors open hood up, trunk up i start cussing at him you bleep bleep its obvious something is wrong bleep bleep ,the person who was nice enough to come over and help started laughing at the guy bc all he could do is pull away.
And my poor kids they were so hot and sweety. It got up to 91 today outside the car imagine inside. they got out and sat next to the pump to stay at least a little cool, Im crying, they started crying, im cussing at the ppl acting fools, tow truck comes and all the money i just made off the cakes went straight to the tow. icon_mad.gif

And we find out whats wrong tomorrow but my friend who came over after he got off work who works on cars for a living said its the ignition that im going to have to get the dealership to install a new one but thats all that seems wrong with it.

Anyways thanks for letting me vent about my horrible no good terrible very bad day

I was in a situation much like yours many years ago and finally one person came up to 'help' me. At the time I thought . "yes, there are still some decent human beings out there" he said "hello", I said "hello", then he said " ya know, I've had days like your's, and then they got worse !"..I couldn't believe what I was hearing, but it was such a redicuous statement I ended up laughing too. I do hope you're having a better day today icon_smile.gif

I'm sorry to hear you had such a terrible day. Hopefully today will be a great one!!

As for the tow, do you have towing coverage on your auto insurance? Check with them, because if so, you can get reimbursed. Also, is your car still under warranty? If so, perhaps you can get a reimbursement through the manufacturer. Good luck!

ok weve got the part but we have to turn it off and on at 30 minute intervals for an 1 1/2 for it to get programed into our cars computer so fingers crossed

it is hard when your vehicle breaks down, but always try to stay positive, good thing your day started off so well and you had the money from your cakes otherwise you would have to come up with the money some other way. Positive thinking, positive attitude, less stress thumbs_up.gif

YAY!!It worked we had to get the "passlock" is what is called programed back into the new ignition its like an antitheft device. if the ignition is tampered with at all it shuts down the fuel system "fuel pump" until we get it reprogrammed but it cranked right up after that. I didnt even want to turn it off
