I phoned an emergency service company, but they wanted $75 to come out. So I asked my friend John if he had jumper cables. He did and he came right over with those cables.
When John and I went to connect the jumpers, up came a drenching rain storm! When the rain slowed and the jumpers connected, the engine still would not turn over. I read the Honda Fit manual, and could not figure out why jumping failed.
During the evening, I went over this battery problem in my mind. Even if the jumping cables had worked, I still would not have a fully charged battery. So, this morning I biked over to the AutoZone and bought a 10 amp battery charger.
However, there is no electric power in my apartment's parking area. If I bought an extension cord and plugged into the apartment's electricity, I would be breaking the rules.
But the battery is small. So, I disconnected the battery and carried it to my apartment. Whew! Small, but not easy to carry that far.
Battery being charged
5pm - The battery has been on the charger since about 9am. And it is not fully charged. I am going to wait it out.
