Lessons learned from the road

Apparently having my cell phone plugged in to the car charger while driving through upper peninsula of Michigan, where I had no service was not the best plan. As soon as the phone found service, near Sault Ste. Marie, it blew the fuse to the lighter which also took out my clock and most painfully my car stereo with about 5 hours last Monday and 4.5 hours last Tuesday to drive. Having your owner manual in the car is a good idea, as I am still not sure which fuse that needs to be replaced and I am looking at a 4-5 hour drive to Ottawa tomorrow.

Update: Well looking on-line worked well. Learned that the two fuseboxes under the hood were not the only ones in my car, there is a third (maybe another one I haven’t found yet) one behind a change drawer in the dash. I had a stereo running for my trip.
