Easy Prius Fix

Well, turns out the Prius only had a dead battery.  Completely drained.  Apparently the dome light got left on all night long.  John thinks it might have happened the other night when he needed to check a paper in the car.  It was so cold out that he got in and out fast and thinks that would have been when it happened. 


Pixie says “Really? Who let you own a car?”

The Toyota people were very nice and didn’t charge us anything to fix it, which they probably could have since it was user error.  I have to say that I actually am really glad that was the problem.  Better than it actually being an electrical problem with a new car, right?

Since we were down in Saratoga, John took his football dinner down there at Hattie’s.  We play fantasy football during playoffs since the picking the winners doesn’t work with only a few games.  I cleaned up during the regular season, but John is kicking my butt in the postseason.

I had a chicken sandwich and a cup of jambalaya soup for dinner!


This was really good.  They do chicken right at Hattie’s!

We actually are going to get a warm up to 25 degrees tomorrow.  Too bad it isn’t going to last.

    Oh my goodness I know you were torn between complete aggravation that you didn’t think of that and complete joy that is all it was. How nice of the dealership to fix it for free! We’re up to 37!!!!! However, there is a wind out there that sounds like a freight train today. The snow hasn’t materialized yet. Fingers crossed it’s staying away!

    Yes I appreciate Toyota’s free battery charge and check-up but still wondering why a modern car (with a computer on board, that turns off your headlights for you and adjusts front airbags according to occupants’ weight) can’t simply turn off the dome light if it’s been on for a while (and allows you to turn it back on if you really need it that long). Japan/Detroit — anyone listening?
