Default Stranded and need help!

Ok, I have an 05 V6 convertible and it has never failed me until now. I had to go out of town for business and after checking into the hotel, I went back out and it wouldn't start! It gave me absolutely no indication beforehand and I had just started it about 45 minutes earlier. It sounds like it's not getting fuel and it won't push start. I had thought to check for air in the fuel line, but I can't find a purge valve.

Anyone have any ideas?

So you didn't call for a tow or a service center to come and get you? Your first reach out for help was to a forum in the evening CST??? You're stranded there and you have internet access to contact a forum???? Did you search for a tow service or service center?

in any case....

Well... I hope you got it all sorted out.

Push start? I'm guessing it is a faulty wiring job

Maybe a few more symptoms would have been of help. Batteries often fail catastrophically while we're driving but you'll never know as long as the alternator can support the load. Shut her off and you're kaput. But since it wouldn't push start, AND you stated it sounds like it's not getting fuel then it must be cranking. Did you check the fuel shut-off relay? It may have spuriously tripped.

Had I seen this last night (and I'm 1 hour ahead of you and since I get up at 4 am I had probably shutdown about the time you posted this) I likely would have tried to assist. Let us ****ing know what it was.
