Life is not only time……paradoxically, it is the denial of time!
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
When you are down...look up...get up...and don't ever give up....
Yesterday was one of those days! Put a lower balljoint in my F150 and the ABS light came on. Since I only unplugged the connector and did not remove the sensor from the hub, I just cleaned the connector applied electrical grease and reconnected. That didn't do the trick though. I either got some wheel bearing grease on the magnet or one of the wire leads broke inside from being moved around. Then get home from my uncles shop to find that my home AC unit is no longer working.
I'm hoping it's just the capacitor. It's bulged out and leaking oil. The compressor kicks on with the reset button but not the fan on the unit. So it's also possible the fan motor went out, taking the capacitor with it. The fan is not seized. That's about as far as my HVAC knowledge goes though lol

Well, the Acura is down for the count again. It started up just fine this morning when Tiff went off to work. Somewhere between here and the gas station, the battery shorted out. It would barely light the dash lights when she went to start it to go the rest of the way to work.
I had to hobble my broke butt over to Ozark at 0615 and jump start the thing. I gave Tiff the Dodge to take to work and I brought the Acura home.
I'm gonna stay home today to see if I can get my back straightened out. I can't hardly use my legs at all right now.
