Can't start my "Pirus" rental car

I had problems from the very start ( pun intended) but I just never figured out how I was getting it started till the next day when I sat in the car and tried a whole bunch of different things. That doesn't mean the 15 minute ordeal in the parking garage at the Getty the first day, was any less painful.

That is ok Bill, I thought maybe they had the car running when you got in.

Years ago we flew to Las Vegas and I started the rental car and started reading the manual on the car. :wall:

Few minutes went by and my wife ask me what I was doing and stupid response was "I just wanted to make sure we had the right car". After that look that all husbands know well she says why would the keys fit and start the wrong car and to this day I don't have a answer that even I would except! :shrug:
