The first time I saw this light, I had no idea what it was. Well, it’s the “check engine” light. We’d been through this before, so I knew the routine: turn the engine off, wait a few minutes, turn it back on, wait a few minutes and…it stayed on. So, I called my Southern man. We all decided I should go back home (it was only a mile away), swap vehicles with our son’s truck and be on my way.
So, this is how things went:
Me: I’m going back home and taking your truck.
Son: Okay, well, listen. When you unlock the door, only put the key in half-way and turn it to the left.
Son: And when you go to start it, if the key doesn’t turn, jerk the wheel really hard to the right. You might have to do it a couple times.
Then, bye, love you, see ya later, and so on.
I go to put my power window up and, as usual, it doesn’t budge. Solution, hold the button down with right hand and punch door panel with left. It goes up and my son and I look at each other through the windshield with knowing smiles. We have a bunch of quirky vehicles. My Southern man is slowly working them out…verrrrrry slowly.
