Whatever you do... don't try to start a fire under your car... I saw an artical about a man trying to do that. Needless to say he blew up his car.

The onlything I can think of, is if you have defroster. To try and use that.

ya try that b/c it sometimes happens to me. if it doesn't turn then turn the steering wheel back and forth while trying to start it. it'll eventually work.

Doesn't the car have to be on for the defroster to function?

Its kinda like saying turn the light on if you want to see in the dark during a power outtage.

Or am I a little confused?

Only thing i can suggest is using a heat gun or blow dryer and an extension cord if the jiggling the steering wheel doesnt work.

I hope you have a nice supply of long johns.

I would be willing to bet that would be the answer. I remember the first time that happened to me I freaked out, then realized what it was and was very releived.
