    Did not want to come out of Sears to a Hellcat that would not start! Damn Jackie!! Had to have it towed to the dealer. Was ultra happy with the tow! Did not touch a thing but the tires! Guy earned a nice tip! Drive the back way and went under 40 MPH the whole 7 miles! Recurring problem, low voltage... 3rd time might be a charm! Let's hope so! At least it did not happen on my 1000 mile round trip to Lincoln yesterday! Thank God for little things!

    I liked your post for the fact that you're being positive and it's being handled, not the bad situation of course. I sincerely hope all turns out well and is resolved asap and that they find the culprit

    Thanks HC.Club! Things don't always go the way you want. I tried to think of all of the people on here who would love to be able to be in my shoes, but only have a # and some hope!

    Sorry to hear about your hard luck. Please let us know what the outcome is! Bad battery, short/ drain or other glitch?........

    Always good to know!

    Hope the dealer figures out your issue quickly and gets you back to driving the Hellcat out of your Beast. Wishing you all the best.

    They started with the "easy" fix, and are working their way in. I was going to take it in for the first oil change at 9:30 in the AM anyway. Had planned on DRIVING there though...

    Ugh, I am really sorry to read this! Good thing we have warranties, huh? I hope the Cat is feeling better, and that you are back on the road soon!

    They are working on it as we speak. Of course it fired right up this morning when the tech went out there. Hope it is a battery issue. That's a quick fix! I really think sitting around in storage did a number on the batteries. Hoping this is he case!! Thanks for the support!

    Hopefully they can find the issue. I hate taking a car into a dealer and telling them what it is doing and they can not get the problem to happen again.

    I plan to start the car every week or so when it is in storage next year. I did that this winter, but this year I just wanted to hear it!
