I take back what I said in a previous post about my car's problems....I am actually a complete dumbo!
Last week I got home and told my dearly beloved that I had a warning light on my dashboard. I needed some oil. David duly went and put the oil in for me thus sealing my fate as permanently helpless female.
The same light came on again this morning! Exasperated I took it home and looked for a lot of black stuff on the drive.....it was clear.
David said he would go and put more oil in. Before that happened I went out for another look in driving horizontal rain.
The light came on and I had a closer look. When I'm driving I can't examine what's happening on my dashboard too closely......what I saw this morning was not an empty oil can....it's a picture of a battery! The stick coming out of it is actually lightening. It was warning me that yet again I've run the battery down.
I do have a solar panel on the dash board to keep the battery turning over but alas no sun at all proved too much of a challenge.
So no oil needed....husband has remained dry....I just need to run the car for a bit! Going to lunch in a nearby village tommorow should do the trick....
My stock as resident dumbo has never been ......erm lower? Higher?
