I humbly submit my question. Well what happened was, I went out to my
car tonight at around 10:00 and the hazard lights are flashing. The
last time I drove car car was the night before, and I'm sure I would
have noticed leaving them on (not that I ever turn them on).
So anyway, I shut them off and am able to start the car no problem,
but now I'm wondering if this could be some funny way of the car
letting me know there's something wrong with it. As a safety thing, my
dad's cadillac will open the trunk and the gas cap if the battery is
running low (or in his case, a faulty alternator). The car seems to be
fine, but now that this has happened I'm not sure if during normal
operation, the digital clock is supposed to have a backlight because
it definitely doesn't (radio and a/c displays still do when i turn
them on). That's why I think it might be a fuse thing. I can check
fuses, and I can use a voltmeter, but beyond changing air filters and
tires there isn't much I know how to do with a car, and I don't have a
trusted mechanic cuz I just moved about 3 months ago.
On a completely unrelated note (and sorry as I'm sure this breaks the
posting rules) I've went to two different places to get an oil change
and have asked them to change my PCV valve, and they've told me that
my car doesn't have one. That just doesn't seem right. My accord meets
LEV and CARB standards, am I really supposed to beleive it has no PCV
Valve? Regardless, I've tried to find the damn thing and can't.
Well, thanks to anyone that takes the time to try and help me. I'm
available for computer and accounting related advice on the both the
google and yahoo boards.
