So I leave tonight at around 10pm to head back to Gainesville. Im on the road battery light still on, I'm talking to me friend on the phone when I see the ABS light come on. Oh $hit what now, but I keep going thinking that if I make it to Gainesville I can take it to Santa Fe Ford so they can fix it. Still crusing along when the brake light comes on! What the hell!! My friend tells me to turn around and head back home, by now the radio is flickering on and off, the headlights are dim and I know I'm doomed
So I turn around and head home, 5 miles down the road engine light turns on, the dash goes dim, the trip meter isn't recording miles and the gas guage reads empty (which trips the gas light on) eventhough the tank is full. 10 miles down the road truck is still on but no matter what gear I put it in there is no go. Sputter sputter die
So I'm on the side of the road on Hwy 27 southbound with no landmarks all I know is I'm south of Hwy 50 and north of 192 there is nothing but darkness around
I Call Ford roadside and they want a better location so they want me to call 911 to see is they can pinpoint my location thru my cell, that's a no go , but now lake county deputies and clermont PD are looking for me on te side of the road
. Ok so a deputy finds me and hangs out with me for a while since my flashers weren't working right. The tow truck passes us by thinking it was a routine traffic stop!!!
Well the deputy had to leave on a call, but 5 mins later the tow truck finally arrives and hooks the truck up from the back (front tires on the ground) and off we go. Not too bad right?? WRONG! We are sitting at a red light waiting to turn left. The light turns green we start to go, but what is that *BOOM* Oh Look My Truck is not on the lift anymore WTF?!?!
Somehow the damn truck fell off the lift, the chain pulled my bumper up, the fiberglass bed is cracked on passenger side, the mudflap is slightly torn off and the passenger side wheel cover is broken. Oh man what a f@ck!ng night.
Sorry about the long post just needed to rant!!!
*Edit* Oh yea I'm sure it is the alternator and knowing this Ford it wont be under warranty
