An excruciating new chapter in the Book of Boris (no relation to The Book of Mormon)
Driving to a client office today all hell broke loose on the dashboard… every warning light blinking, alarms sounding, star-trek doors whooshing open and closed and phasers set to KILL! Engine computer was reporting suspension failure, HDC failure, break failure, *everything* failure…
after swearing loudly I managed to quickly pull into a Shell Station which was conveniently only a hundred yards down the road.
Boris quietly pulled up to a pump.. before spluttering and dying.
Insert Key and absolutely nothing happens.
Pop open bonnet (which is a hood to you Americans) and only a faint whiff of electrical burning smell. *gulp*
I’m typing this after it was towed off to a local garage for investigation.
If I had started numbering my vehicle breakdowns over the last two years I wonder if this one would have put me into treble digits?
