My Red Colt

So this is my old red friend. My Mitsubishi Colt, year of construction 1992.
Now he slowly shows symptoms of old age. His front left tire loses air. I have to refill it at least once in two weeks. But that is only the smallest problem. Even he is a bit old he has a anti-theft device installed. So I have to push a little codekey in a key sensor to disable this device. It used to work the last 3 years. But since the beginning of this year it seems to have a loose connection. I have to move and twist the codekey in the sensor many times to disable the device...Anyways I wanted to refill the front tire today. I jumped into the car and plugged in my codekey. But nothing happened. So I began with the twisting. This time I needed over 10 minutes to disable the anti-theft device! Then I wanted to start the engine and you'll probably know what happened...the Battery was empty....I coudn't even start the car T.T
After a little pause I tried starting the engine the anti-theft device was activated again...and I nearly exploded. I tried to disable the device for another 5 minutes but without luck. So I just went inside again.

I'm greatful that my COLT did manage the last 3 years though ^^
I think I owe him at least a new battery.
