What To Do If Your Car Won’t Start -or-You Have a Flat Tire

Your car may not start for a number of reasons. If you have jumper cables, you’ll need to find another student on campus to help you jump start your vehicle. If you do not own jumper cables you can stop by the physical plant office during business hours, M – F, 8am to 5pm, closed for lunch 12pm – 1pm, and check out a set with your student ID. Physical Plant staff (or Campus Safety) will not be able to help you jump start your vehicle. If you are unable to start your vehicle after a jump there may be something more serious wrong with it.  Here are some options below for calling a repair shop or towing company depending on the issue.

Key locked in vehicle:

  • First, check with your insurance. You may have coverage with roadside service.
  • Call a locksmith (police do not provide this service).

In case of a flat tire, call Monteith Tire
