We had a wonderful time driving our 24K 2009 (bought in Nov, 2009) Outlook until we started heading back home (6 hour drive) this Holiday Thanksgiving weekend. After a couple of hours we stopped at a gas station. After fueling the key would not turn-over. We thought that this was a dead battery, until Roadside Assistance (about a 45 minute wait) jump started us and told us that the anti-theft mechanism in the steering wheel shutdown the whole car. We had no access to even push the emergency lights on. Absolutely nothing worked. I mean NOTHING! There was certainly no indication that the battery was low (we have a battery meter on our instrumentation panel). But again, the car required a jump start. What could have caused this and will this happen again ?
