Size 10.5 Riddell. Them puppies cost $4.00 and don't owe me a thing at this point. They are still quite comfy.

I really need to get this fixed... I realized that when I start the car, it automatically indicates that the gear selector is in Park for about 30 seconds. The Park light is on and everything. However, after it idles for a bit, the Park indicator turns off and the car idles way down, like when you're in Drive and you've got your foot on the brake. The car actually thinks it'* in Drive (or some other gear other than Park or Neutral), which is why my CASE learn wouldn't work. I'm glad the problem was so easy to locate, because it'* a real pain in the butt.

If you guys can get it, I'd suggest heat shrink tubing (rad shack) and a blow dryer. That way you will have a great connection for years to come.

We don't have it fixed quite yet.... I think Doug was saying that he thought of the heat shrink tubing yesterday, before you did. Which makes you a day behind us. Feel bad yet?

But seriously..... no, the lights aren't blinking. They just fail to light up... period.
