Today has totally sucked!! I made a colossal mistake and left my back window down in my SUV. Of course it rained forever last night with lightening and thunder. This morning when I went out to my car I saw my window down and immediately thought "Oh No - someone has tried to break into my car". Then I looked and saw no glass and I thought - no dummy you left your window down. So I start up my car because of course I am running late to work - as usual. When I start it up there are two lights on. One is the check engine light and the other is the VSC light. So at this point I am thinking....you have really done it now. And with my light bit of car knowledge thinking to myself how the heck could me leaving my window down and the car getting rained in have anything to do with my engine. So I call my husband who of course yells at me and says he is to mad to even talk to me because he told me to make sure my windows were up the night before. I get to work and look up the codes which all say "Take to Toyota Dealership". So on my lunch break I went and had the code read and it said "Tire Speed Sensor" I guess one of them is possibly bad. So they reset the codes and I am waiting to see if that comes back on. BUT so the big thing that happened is that the window that was left down is the window behind the driver and right below the drivers seat is the VOICE RECOGNITION AND NAVIGATION BOX and now my navigation does not work. I am very sad about this! The warranty is for 3 years or 36 thousand miles and I am out of both. My mileage reads 36,941. Can you believe that? So $1500 for a new navigation system or $200-400 for a rebuilt one. Guess I will be saving up my money for a rebuilt one.
On a better note - my giveaway is still going on until 7/23/09 and you can still enter below!
