On January 27, 2009 I had a new battery installed at Canadian Tire. There was a charge as well for a new ”negative battery clamp“.
Two months later that battery was DEAD!….so I just struck off in my wheelchair to the office. On the way a car backed out of a driveway and ran me down. So after 2˝ years and 3 surgeries on my broken femur, the last one removing the femoral head, I am still in pain, but have no hip rotation (the leg is useless) and am very close, with my lawyer, to filing a claim.
Meanwhile, as bad as the pain was I wanted to get my car on the go again and it wasn’t until today, that finally one of the servicemen found what is likely the problem.
The negative battery clamp was wrong. It appears that, back in 2009, Canadian Tire, finagled a positive battery clamp into a negative, which is apparently supposed to be smaller. Is spite of the finagling, the clamp was loose, and all this while that I am healing, and going through Hell, I find this out, by finally taking my car to Chrysler.
Just a negative on Canadian Tire.
