Yeah, i was out driving and didnt know my alternator was gone until it started losing power and finally died, which meant my battery was dead, i was almost home so i hoofed it after trying to push start it and got a battery from another vehicle to make it home
Edit: Its been a few days so im sure hes fixed it by now, sorry for the off-topic
