    If you were gritting round a housing estate how did you happen to have the keys to the jeep ?

    Is it still driving away or did you get it back into your control?

    no it's fine now I haven't driven it since but mechanic has and says it's fine. I jumped in and shut the key off then it refused to start so got him out to it. But what it did is impossible so I'm confused
