Hey Guys, RC just decided to leave me stranded (sorta). Was making a turn after driving for about 30 minutes and engine died. Coasted to a good stopping place, put it in park and go to turn it over and get a very weak crank. Just seems to me like the battery has been drained and since I wasn't giving it gas around the turn it just idled to low and died. Earlier this week I had a problem and a few of you thought it could be a solenoid...could this be the end result of something like that going bad? The alternator is fairly new with less than a year in service and not that many miles. Battery is also fairly new and I can't see any visual defects in the wiring. So, plan is to get my wife's pop to try to jump it (RC is about 6 miles from the house and he's about 2 from there) but I'm just wondering if I'll have the same problem if I stop giving it gas. Other options are either go buy a new battery to get it to the house or have it towed both cost about the same. Any ideas?
