Out of bad comes good so thanks for the help guys.
Those dudes who tow for MB have scruples. When one guy hauled me to the stealer for a new ignition he put a hairline scratch on my rear bumper. He offered me 200 bucks but I told him to forget it because I was putting a body kit on within days but he insisted. We settled on $50 and I bought my wife flowers.........Awwwwwww.

OK please help, I have never had this happen before.

The battery is fully charged and I even have a portable jumper which didn't seem to help. I don't have a key fob, just two keys. No alarm but the Alarm light, which normally blinks is now is on constantly, but not blinking. Any help would be great.
So, have you been helped ?

Yes, I have and completely happy. I have been using the same Mechanic for over 5 years now. These guys know me all to well. I do like the fact that they go out their way to fix things, even though they are a smaller shop then average.

This is the fare of towing. My friend had her car towed last week and the person driving behind the guy smashed her back bumper something bad. They are now looking for a new bumper for her and will have her car in the body shop as well.

I did assume they would refund me the tow charges but I decided to pay the charge so as they don't think I am trying to get over on them. It was a funny thing watching the owner of the company speak to the guy who towed my car. The guy asked "Well how do you know this wasn't like that before I towed it?" Myself and the Owner looked at him, like Thats the best you could do? Then the guy said, "Ok I did it, I'm sorry.."
