“OK. You’re a mechanic.”
“No! No! There’s a light on the car dashboard that says ‘Maintenance Required.’ Call me a mechanic!”
So goes the conversation inside my brain when one of those little lights comes on while I’m driving. It may have read “Maintenance Required” but in my head it was screaming, “Pull over immediately or you’ll die!”
Maybe I overreacted a bit.
The car is trying to tell me something I know, but I don’t know exactly what. I had the car into the Dealer’s shop a couple of weeks ago for an oil change and to get it ready for winter. They took care of everything, but the little orange light started flashing almost immediately. I wondered why. Everything should have been hunky-dory.
