neutral when truck is off
The other day I came back to the parking lot after boarding and found that I had a dead battery. I asked someone if they had time to give me a jump. I had no empty spots around me so I told him I would push my truck out to make it more accessible. Needless to say, I couldn't (to my knowledge) move the transmission (automatic) into neutral without the truck running. what's up with that and if it happens again, shouldn't there be a way to get it into neutral?
Also, I found that I drove 100 miles after it started and turned it off for 10 minutes and it wouldn't start again. After discussing with a few people, one had told me that it's not that uncommon for a battery to go without seeing any signs. I bought a new battery and all is back to normal. I know it isn't my alternator or I would have never made it 100 miles. Anything else I should be suspicious about?
BTW: 2002 xcab is what I drive
