Did that today, before I posted this, when they did the touch-up on the tint. Neither him or I could find an obvious short except the one in the brake light I mentioned earlier.
I spoke with the shop owner for awhile and came to the conclusion that I had my windows done by the Bubba Gump Tint Company.
I'm picky about who touches my car, and sometimes pickier after the first time or two.
This guy might can do tint, but I wouldn't let him change my oil.
UPDATE: Today on the way to the trans shop for a service check, the problem righted itself - sort of.
The lights stopped going out on the clock, compass, and Driver Info Cntr, but it ding ding dinged at me every time I touched the brake.
Push the brake, it says tail light out ding ding ding.
Let off the brake it says the third eye light is out ding ding ding.
During this time I couldn't set the cruise control.
On the way back from the transmission shop, it reverted to turning out the lights on the clock, etc.
O/T The good news is the trans checked fine and has a new filter and has been flushed. The leak it had was in the trans pan gasket. Yay! A little film in the pan, so some worn clutches they said. Well duh, it'* only got almost 300K miles on it!
From 180K miles to 280K miles as a daily pizza beater with minimal maintenance hasn't fazed this car one bit.
