Subject: heater switch failure prone?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII; format=flowed
I don't know how common it it, but the car has 240K on in. For a year
it's had an "extra" position to the right that did nothing, but you
could clearly feel the lever click into that position.
When it gave out was after I was warming the car in the driveway a few
days ago. The switch operated just fine, but when I can out later it
felt ver hard to move, and not has two postions, off and medium, and
it's not really easy to get it into either of them.
On the other hand, my 90 carat, with almost as many miles, operates
very crisply, as it did when new.
