    Some cars dont like that, for a long length of time, when you reconnect, the ecu will have gone into learn mode again, which is a pitb.

    Much easier to have a convenient little switch under the dash that only kills the radio

    Its nothing to do with the french. You failed to understand my post.

    When printing was invented in Germany, the first typefaces were of course based on Continental alphabets. When printing presses were brought to England in 1476, along with the continental typefaces, english printers, who were typesetting handwritten books, could not print the english thorn character, so they used the capital Y.

    If you can find a copy in your local library, i refer you to Joseph Ames "Typographical Antiquities"
