Benefits of the Internet
The internet has been very good to me. The amount of information you can find is unbelievable. I have learned so much in the past few years. For example, yesterday morning my car alarm went off in the morning. Normally I would just start the car and it would stop. Well, not this time. It wouldn't let me. So the alarm beeps on for a while, possibly driving my neighbors nuts. After a while it goes off, but I'm afraid of trying again. Our street is VERY quiet, so it just seemed louder. So I go online, and find there is a button called the Valet Override Button that would manually override the alarm and let you start the car and turn the alarm off. So I wait till about 10 am, just to make sure people are up, and quickly searched for the "magic" button while the alarm is going off. And wa-lah! it worked and I was relieved. Mine was located near the front hood latch. I've learned how to fix many things thanks to the internet.
