I am a 26 year old father, developer and designer. At my day job, I work as a certified Java and SalesForce developer to create custom web applications for a variety of clients. Any free time I have left over, after parental duties, is spent learning or honing my craft. I aspire to be a developer others can learn from and count on.

comment Fan running the battery dead on a 96 Acura
I haven't swapped out the relay but the reason is is that sometimes it will start cold, without the engine running. I suppose if the relay was stuck it would make more sense what it was stuck open after being in a proper running state. This is opening without the engine even running or being warm.

comment Why does my gas not fill all the way?
When I refilled from E, I got 12.5 gal of a 16 gal tank. That could either mean E is actually 3.5 gal left or E is ~0 and the neck is flaky.

comment How do you set side mirrors?
This is a great answer and the diagram really drives it home. +1 for answering a question I didn't know I had.

comment Automatic trasmission gear lock when accelerating
I can't remember well enough to make an answer but I think goes something like this: When you accelerate, the car tries to shift into higher gears. When you depress the peddle it pushes back to lower gears. This is why when you go up hills and start to slow, depressing the accelerator eventually pops you into a lower gear (with the jarring high rev to boot). This, however, could be way off base.

comment Left blinker quirky when braking
This was (mostly) it. The problem was the ground but the location was in the wire itself. I don't know how but when I bend the ground wire it sometimes works better, and other times worse.I wouldn't think that a wire that never moves could become unreliable but there it is.
