Stopping In…

Posted by Iszi on January 17, 2005

Greetings, Readers.

I’m just swinging by to say “Hi”, and update my blog templates (read: links section) a little bit. Not really much to say right now.

Only big thing is our car’s acting real buggy all of a sudden. It started a few days ago, when it just wouldn’t start for some reason. Popped the hood to look at things, jiggled the battery cables a little, turned the key again and it came on. Couple days later (yesterday) the same thing happened. Popped the hood, smacked the battery a bit, and it fired right up with the next turn of the key. Now, however, the bugger’s dead. I mean totally flat-line, not starting for anything’s sake. Power is obviously flowing, as the lights, radio, and dashboard console all work. However, a “low battery” light is still showing, and nothing starts when the key is turned. Not even after a jump.

So, it should be interesting to see how things pan out from here. My wife has a cousin who works on cars and lives not far from here, so hopefully he’ll be able to come over sometime soon and figure out what’s going on, and hopefully it’ll be soemthing cheap to replace. If not, I could be stuck with the ol’ two-wheeler for awhile.

Anyway, I’m off to get that template clean-up done. Might even squeeze in a couple updates to My World In Pictures while I’m at it. After that, it’s bedtime since I have cell group tonight, and work after that.

See y’allz later!

    Just to update this, the problem ended up being with the starter solenoid. Had some real fun times jacking the car up and banging the sucker in the occasional parking lot that we might get stuck in. It’s fixed now, but we are having some new problems with the headlight switch. No night travel for us until we can get it into the shop (again).
