    Hi all,

    It all began when I jumped my brother in law's diesel Mercedes. He had a heating unit plugged in to 120V to my notknowing. Since then, the Combination Flasher (in glove box) continues to click as if the turn signal was on. Not always as staccato as a turn signal click, sometimes irregular. I went to the dealer and got a new one, but didn't fix the problem.

    My question on that is, what problems might occur if I don't find the source of the problem in time? Could it short out the "brain" on the car? I was told it might..

    Also, I recently found out my used truck has a remote start. I've been using it and since then, the security light pops on every now and then. What's say to that??

    Thanks all!

    Michael
