Car Broke Down? Top 3 Get Back On The Road Solutions

May 21, 2014  

So you’re on the highway on your way to an important business meeting out of town, and you are already stressed and pumped when you start to hear some weird noises coming from the engine. Then the car literally starts to shake on the road and it suddenly stops. You turn the key in the ignition trying hard to get the engine to poor again, but its stubbornness makes you want to pull your hair out. The drivers behind you are already honking for 5 minutes – you’re just lucky the car behind you wasn’t close enough to crash into you when your vehicle suddenly decided to die on you. What now?  

Call a car toll service and take your car to the shop.

Keeping the original scenario in mind – you were on your way to an important businesses meeting – the last thing you have time for now is to call a toll service and have them take your car to the nearest car shop. Who knows what’s wrong with the car, it’s not working as it used to for a while now and you knew something like this was coming eventually, you just didn’t expect it will be on the day of the big merger!

Try to fix the problem by yourself.

If you suspect it’s a matter of a detached wire you can easily put back in lace on your own, or if you think your batteries is drained, pull the car to the side of the road as much as possible turn the emergency headlights on and try to fix it as fast as possible. Call another driver friend to come and give you a hard, especially if y problem is a drained battery. Assuming your problem is you cannot get inside your car as the lock seems to be jammed or the ignition seems to be showing the same problem, call an emergency locksmith service in your area and have the come over and fix it.
