Try unplugging it from the wall, then wait 15 minutes and plug it back it, should turn right on.

Errors depend on the vehicle manufacturer, and the model... I know some newer Fords would store body computer errors and such, down to window motor codes. But who knows what would be stored on an e46.

With most cars if the battery is disconnected for 5-10 mins it will reset all codes (small battery that runs the ecu when there is no power goes dead). If the code is there when you reconnect its probably still bad...


TV is dead, tryed everything...

Thanks, Jeff - I'm much improved today after gallons of water and NyQuil, and some good sleep. Just gonna keep chugging water until the festivities on Saturday.

Work is painfully slow today.

It is a real charge, but it's more difficult to prove in court - especially considering the two biatches who are bringing this stuff up are already employed there. It shows that the employer obviously didn't have a problem with their age in the first place.

I just printed that out and gave it to my boss... I also just found out that there was info given to them about my previous work experience... which is not legal, either.


This should be fine, no probs, it's just a headache. Jeff, if you read this, it is NOT TO BE REPEATED. SERIOUS.
