Cars, warning lights and Christmas…Part 1

photo (9)When you look at this picture what thought or thoughts immediately comes to mind?

  • STOP the car!!
  • Why is she still driving?
  • What is wrong with her car?
  • Why is she taking pictures while driving. . . and. . .at night!?!?

Any and all of those may have been your thoughts. I will try to answer some of them.

I drive the car even though the “STOP” warning light and “OIL PRESS. LOW” light beeps, sometimes several times during a normal car ride.

I have no idea what is wrong with my car.  I’ve checked my oil.  It seems to be fine.  So until it quits running, I will keep driving.

Would you mind sharing YOUR thoughts about this picture here?  I’d like to use them for Part 2.

  1. Something’s probably wrong with the electronics, but according to friends who’ve had similar problems this can be hard to diagnose. I’ve got very mixed feelings about these “helpful” warnings. A “check engine” light used to come on in my old Mazda pickup. Nothing was wrong with the engine, but the first time it happened I was sure a big honking repair bill was in my future. My Forester tells me when it thinks the tire pressure is too low — this often happens when cold weather sets in. That “STOP” on a red background seems designed to inspire panic. Advertisers use fear to sell stuff. Politicians use fear to sell themselves. Enough already.

Now it's your turn to write...
