Always winking

My 2003 PT Cruiser is winking at me. And everyone else. All the time.

Because the fog lights think that they’re on. Even though I turned them off. Well, one of the lights – the other one burned out like a year ago. I just haven’t gotten around to replacing it.

The fog light problem started happening about a month ago. Randomly, usually when I first start the car. But, I’d adjust the lighting control, and, it would stop.

Yesterday, though, it wouldn’t turn off. I was on my way home. I tried everything. When I parked it, I tried turning on the turn signal after the car was off. That worked!

But, today, it did not.

See. It's winking.

That’s why I have a CD case sitting on the light control switch. Something must be shorted out. And that fixes it. For now.

The fix.

Anyways, that would all be fine and such if it were just one technical abnormality. But, there was the issue of the screwed screws that were included in the packaging of the china cabinet I put together during the cold front weekend. It was part of my to-do list. Here’s a photo: two messed up screws out of 12 is a pretty crappy average.

Though screwed, these screws still basically worked.

And the refrigerator makes this insane noise all the time, too. The fix: Unplug it and swear at it. That last part is the most important.
