   Woah, you *paid* for one? I took my sick car to the local Auto Zone
store the other night. The goatee'd teen behind the counter ran out to
the parking lot and read off the code (and full text!) from a
Fluke-looking handheld. He read it twice more when he saw me frantically
scribbling it down on my hand, too. :7)

    I found the explanation on the net, tried the gas-cap trick despite
their advice, and the light went off the next day.

   Now, to find a dealer who wants to give too much for it in
