My dashboard lights blinked out on me today. THAT was disconcerting. And it was just the dashboard lights -- the radio's lights and the odometer LCD, both on the dimmer were just fine. But I called my mechanic friend to see if he knew what fuse needed to be replaced and he said he'd take a look. It wasn't a fuse. He said the whole dome of the dash would have to be taken apart to see what was wrong. Bummer. How expensive/time consuming would that be?
Well, we hadn't talked for awhile so we chewed the fat for about 20 min (lots of changes in both our families), and I suddenly looked over to discover that my dash lights were back on! Entirely of their own accord. My car healed itself. (Amazing self-healing machine, HOOH!)
I told my friend he should add that to his resume, that he laid hands on cars to heal them.
