Note this is a nationwide forum so the chance of any local auto repair vendor seeing your post is negligable - plus vendors/shops do not cruise this site looking for customers, it works the other way around - customers go to the site looking for the ratings and reviews on vendors in the category they need and then contact them.

The Search the List category for your issue would be Auto Repair, which will include both mobile and shop-based mechanics.

And AL does not allow personal info on postings, so your contact info will undoubtedly disappear in a day or so.

Assuming it is not a dead battery or out of gas, I would recommend finding a well-rated repair shop or dealer (whichever you tend to use) to repair it rather than a mobile mechanic - because (especially with modern computerized vehicles) a lot of jobs are too big to do in your driveway, or the mechanic might bite off more than he can reasonably chew and leave you with a partly disassembled vehicle to deal with. Note many auto repair shops will tow a non-opeating vehicle in for free if the ultimate repair bill is over about $500 or if they have their own tow truck.

Or if you have a car-savvy friend, ask him to come over and scope it out for some pizza and beer - or maybe catfish or shrimp in your area. With a volt-ohm meter and automotive code-reader he should be able to rule or confirm the easy causes pretty quickly and maybe help fix it to at least tell you if a mobile mechanic or a shop is what you need.
