it needs a new battery. he's going to put one in.
he says the gears feel notchy but at the moment, it's not bad enough to warrant tearing the thing open. could be the synchro mesh going bad.
he also says that when you lock and arm the car, it actually reduces the number of things that draw power from the battery-- it goes into a 'sleep' mode. so my strategy of not locking actually did the opposite of what i intended.
i'm very happy that i'm getting my car back tonight. i've got a trip planned for saturday that i would definitely not want to miss.
