my copy of Saints Row 2 for xbox 360 will not spawn a tow truck at the Rim Jobs in the suburbs during the three kings mission where you have to help a lieutinant repo the hearse, it's just a blue arrow pointing at the ground! I thought it might be because of the cheats, so I deleted the game and started all over without any cheats but it still happens. WTF?!

Is your game installed to the hard drive? It might not be loading in the tow truck due to a slight problem with your dvd-drive, either being slow to read (might be a smudge on the disc), or it just needs a little more time to load in.

How long have you attempted to wait for the tow truck to zone in?

the game wasn't installed but i cleaned the disk, and tried the misson several times with no luck. I even found and tried the cheat to give the tow truck, the game accepted the cheat and it still didn't show up in my garage! so i wiped the game update from my cache and that fixed it. now I can't play 2 min without seeing a tow truck

Glad to hear it's been fixed for you.

Why will the game not install? Do you have a problem with your disc? Do you not have enough space on your hard drive? Is there a specific message you're seeing?

Ahh well. You wanted a tow truck and you got a tow truck.

here's how i did it:
1. go to your xbox dashboard
2. from My Xbox flip all the way right to system settings
3. select memory
4. highlight (but don't select) your hard drive or where ever u have your SR2 game info stored
5. press Y for device options, select clear system cache (don't worry it won't delete your game saves), select yes, then press A

when thats done start the game and it will ask if you want to update - DON'T UPDATE - it will sign you out of xbox live but it's ok. Now if your playing for acheivements retry the mission, if not, dial this cheat into your phone - #1071 -
go to cheats then vehicles and activate the "give shaft" cheat, and it should spawn the tow truck in your garage.

I'm also stuck at the Three Kings mission in SR 2, but my problem is that the tow truck won't tow.  It drives fine, I've restarted the game multiple times, cheated my way there, as well as getting there legit, I've also uninstalled and reinstalled the game, but its still not lifting the car at the cemetary.
