My new JVC has no fewer than one trillion settings, most of which are set by spinning the ****. I'm thinking about finding one of those cigarette lighter memory savers.

(Seriously, radio makers, a non-volatile flash chip or watch battery cost less than a nickel in bulk...)

Remember, disconnect the negative battery cable. Not the positive. It dose make a difference.

I have not done it, but did see it done, putting a wrench on the positive and then loosening it and then bumping the part of the frame is real fun to watch, when it'* not my car.

That'* why GM gave us a piece of plastic on the radiator support. Kinda funny to me, because very few other cars have that.

I've only really noticed it on ours though. I've seen someone weld a wrench to the fender...that was funny.
