article imageDog starts car after eating chip

By Chris V. Thangham     Nov 8, 2007 in Entertainment
A woman motorist tried to start the car with a key remote but it didn’t work, so she called the car service agency AA to help her get going. The patrolman used her dog to start the car after the dog ate the electronic car starter chip.
Juliette Piesley, 39 changed the battery in her electronic key fob which she uses to start her car. But it didn’t work. So, she had to call AA, the car service agency similar to AAA in the US or CAA in Canada.
Kevin Gorman, the AA patrolman arrived soon after and tried to help her out. But as he was inspecting the key fob, he found that its immobilizer chip in the key fob was missing.
Juliette said the dog ate something recently and then she realized it must have been the chip.
Gorman then put the dog in the front seat and started the car with the key.
Gorman said this is the first time in his service career where he had to use the dog to start a car.
Until Piesley gets another key from the dealership, she has to use her dog to start the car.
A BBC report does not mention whether the dog will be operated on.
