Many times over the past years. I have refused only a few times after checking under-hood for other serious problems which may exist that can cause a run-down battery/failure to start.

Seems the most neglected section of most vehicles is the battery and connections(cable ends)on older and some newer vehicles. They often look terrible for daily use and usually are ready to cause a failure anytime.

I know there are many Drivers that don't have or want knowledge about those areas of scary hazards to contend with until problems arise.

Have a trusted auto mechanic look at those areas on a regular basis to avoid stalled operation during bad weather perhaps in bad places.
