    I have a rant that I don't mean to be political, although it kind of is and I'll try to keep it neutral.

    Monday on the radio, they said the Governor used an executive order to delay the April 7th elections until June 6th. OK, fine, whatever. My district hasn't had a Washington Congressman since last summer when the one we had resigned for family reasons. Yesterday my back was giving me fits,,,,,,,,AGAIN,,,,,,,,so I stayed home from work and didn't listen to the radio as I usually do on the way to and from work. So,,,,,,this morning on the way to work I hear "The results of the April 7th elections won't be known until next Monday when all the absentee ballots are counted". WTF? It was delayed until June so I didn't go out to vote, yet the elections were held after all. Turns out the executive order was illegal and the State Supreme Court overruled it. Again I say WTF?????????????? Rant over.

    Today I sweated the heat in the garage moving things around to reach the back wall and get the air conditioner out and called it quits. We still don't have anything but a couple big old 30K(? maybe bigger, I don't remember but they work Great) window 220 units.

    So I don't know if this qualifies as a rant or what, but it was miserable.

    And on another note, the wife had a tire down to 30 psi after work today. She noticed and checked, and called before driving home. Gotta LOVE that woman! So that got parked over in the big garage driveway also and dealt with. But here's the bad part. She threatened my Testes if her tire gauge didn't get returned to her console after I would finish with it! Like I would need hers or something? So then she did the girl thing of seamlessly slipping her bra out from under her shirt and eyeballed me, then showed the boobies. I stayed tru to my work and left her untouched gauge on her seat to poke her butt in the morning. Is there something else I should do here? Please advise...

    Not mopar related but what would cause a radio in a 2014 Beetle to come on while the car is off and not running. I can turn it off but maybe a hour or so later it comes on again. Christine has found a home in the Beetle. LOL

    Noise on the CAN bus. Or Russian hackers on the CAN bus.

    Samy is a sharp guy, but there are hundreds of others on this topic.

    Edit: Easy to find lots of other videos on this topic once you look. The take over, steer, brake, accel the car through the OnStar system and drive it one is scary.

    Edit: Edit: That video isn't a good example. It's a lot more technical. But the modern car hacking info is out there.

    The radio in my Challenger does some strange stuff at times. It has never come on by itself that I know of but it would not shut off even with the engine and accessory setting off and opening the door. The dealer from where I retired said that was in the radio itself and ordered a replacement. I suppose it could be the radio or just about anything else that may wake the radio up at times.

    I removed the SD card and the CD that was in the unit. Also read online to hold on off button for tens seconds. So far it is off. I will see. Thanks

    Gotta love all these secret button sequences to force a reboot of equipment that should be *off* when the key is out.
