The advantages of being blonde (Plenty of Audi Content)

I haven't had a 1990 version car since, well, the nineties so I forget  
that the lights don't automatically shut off. Lucky for me, I don't go out at  
night that often (sad) so I haven't had that many opportunities to drain the 
 battery ;) 
Soooo, I finally did forget to shut the lights the other night and had a  
dead car the next morning.
This came on the heels of my last post to the list asking about the  
Autocheck on the dash not changing, giving me false "E" when my tank was half  
full. being stuck at 12.6 MPG (ugh) that kind of thing. Well, apparently the  
Audi works very much like my computer, or the cable coming into my house - 
every  time there's a problem, the techie says: Unplug everything, wait 3 
minutes and  boot her up!
After I charged the battery and got the car back on the road, guess what?  
The Autocheck appears to be functioning again. Like the number of miles per  
gallon actually changes depending on what I'm doing. Its a miracle!
