Cool Possessed Bonnie

Possessed Bonnie.....

You heard it right. I work at a local paper in Greenville, OH. and as I was driving home on a cold wet night last night I noticed that the cruise control would come on automatically. Then I noticed that she would get real aggressive going up hills. When I applied my delay wipers on they would not shut off (known problem) and when the wipers where in the low position the headlights would come on. I turn them off, the headlights would do the same.

Know I studied the sounds in the engine as I was driving to figure out the aggressiveness of Bonnie and turns out ...LEAD FOOT. Hey not my fault she'* a bitchin' car.

Second... I noticed that she calls to me sometimes...Does this happen to you? Or am I nuts?

I rarely use the horn. Squealing tires get one'* attention much better.

Your car isn't named Christine is it? Not sure if this applies here but Dodge caravans have problems with the clock spring in the steering wheel, and this causes all kinds of problems. Just like you described. I've also had a possessed Bravadia. totally evil. Ended up getting rid of it.

the wipers and the headlights are tied together, its a feature built into the vheicle

when the wipers are activated, after a 3-5 sec delay the headlights will turn on
