Calm down? I was stuck at work. 45 minutes away from home. It's starting to snow. No tools except for some crap kit a lady at my work had.
Anyway, the lady had a battery jumper/tester. Tested the battery with the crappy tester part. Tester said it was around 13.2 volts. The fuse box at the driver's kick panel was dry (problem that the rx-8 guys had) and the problem was getting progressively worse (interior lights started flashing and hazards eventually stayed on steady with the occasional slight flicker.). All signs pointed to adead battery, but the tester said it was fine. I decided to jump start it anyway because I didn't trust the tester.... and whaddya know. It fired right up. Looks like the battery is the issue and that "tester" on the battery jumper is a piece of shit. New battery tomorrow.
