Crap! My brand new AGM battery went into overheat mode and ended up wherever dead batteries go after they die. With the stench of the sulfur, I thought it was the rapture (it WAS May 21, after all).
So I got stuck at Lake Powell for one night before a buddy came to rescue me with truck and trailer -- been broke down in worse places.
This '08 SE is on it's second VR and if it turns out to be that it is at fault (after all, it may be a faulty battery) I will seriously consider relocating it as well.
