Possible problems: -water in the gasoline. Use gas dryer fluid from auto parts store. -water in the distributor if you have one. Have someone who knows how, remove the cap and dry it with a shop rag. -dead battery. Recharge battery or get a jump start. Go for a 20 minute drive to recharge. -water on starter contacts. Have a Mechanic dry them. -burned out relay or fuse. Replace per owners manual.

Yes. There would have to be some reasonable suspicion, just as with any other traffic stop, but there's no specially immunity for being stopped just because you are outside your house.

No, if the car was shut off and cool, which it would have been by then. You did not try to start the car. It would have had to have been a random act of vandalism to get the car on fire.

I would start with the car and then move to the homeowners.

No, as long as the vehicle is not driven. But if something happens such as a tree falls on it, you would have to pay for the damages out of your own pocket.

It completely depends on your state laws. In California it would not be, but in Utah it would.

Of course it is your fault. The fact that the car was illegally parked is of no consequence. You didn't look where you were backing or you would not have hit the parked car. Would you have hit this car if you had been looking? Perhaps the illegally parked car is a Mini Cooper, parked illegally 1 foot behind a Hummer and therefore not visable when the driver looks before backing up...

This is not the cause, this relay is to start the and run the compressor (Basically) and it will not cause the system to lower overnight.

Come on, you know the answer to this. The person driving the car that caused the damage to the two parked cars is responsible for all damage. Who else would be at fault? Accept responsibility for your actions.

Most likely your motor is low on oil and is knocking from being over heated.

I would think it is the parked cars falt. Call a lawyer. They can tell you right off. I would think it is the parked cars falt. Call a lawyer. They can tell you right off.

Assuming the parking lot was open, and the car had every right to be parked there. The owner of the snowplow, and possibly the operator of it would be liable for damages to the parked car.

Generally speaking, the driver in motion is considered to be at fault when a parked car is hit, even if the car was parked illegally. The exception to this would be if the car was parked in a dangerous, hard-to-see location and the driver in motion could not have reasonably avoided hitting it. For example, if a car is parked on a sharp curve in the travel lane of a narrow road, and the driver of a car driving around the curve at the speed limit would not be able to see the parked car until too close to it to avoid a collision, then the driver might not be liable for damage to the parked car, and indeed the driver who parked the car might be liable for damage to the car that hit it.

I would try and get over the fear of being outside at night by being outside at night with someone. Maybe a friend or a relative. Also, acknowledge the prejudgments of being out a night. If support from a friend and rationalizing the problem doesn't work, consider getting help from a professional. There are psychologists that specialize in fears such as your.

I have a 1997 Geo prizm. It stalled on me going to work the other day and would start back up. It satfor about 2.5 hours before my boyfriend got there to look at it and it started right up for him. After itgot warm again it wouldn't turn on for him. What could be wrong with my car? If it's being started fromparked for a little bit then it starts right up.

Most people would start their Land Rovers on their drives, outside their houses.
