Eh, I quit FB altogether when I realized I was addicted to Zynga poker. I was spending up to 10 or more hours a day playing when I didn't have a job.

I never have nor will play any fb games. I strictly use it for making nonsensical status updates and e-stalking people.

Ahh that lol. Yeah I was driving a Volvo, but it was a burgundy 240 wagon that was one of our crew vehicles. I definitely have never raced in a rally lol, only rallyX (once) when I had my old Subaru.

So here's a weird one. I've been done with my brakes and everything now for a couple weeks and I've had a brake lining light problem. Basically, it's still on, but it's not just on solid. It turns on and off, pretty much once every rotation of the wheel. So it'll be on for half of the rotation of the wheels, and off for the other half, then back on. Essentially as I get up to speed, it just flickers. Wouldn't be a huge issue, however it is somehow also effecting my stereo. I have an iPod transmitter that uses a blank radio station to play my iPod in the car. Well, there is always static in the background, but when the brake lining light is on, the static is louder, and when it's off it's quieter.

Cliff notes:
I've got the brake lining light flashing at me and I've got my stereo going into convulsions ever since I replaced my brake pads, sensors, calipers, and rotors....any ideas?

Remove the cluster and pull the bulb for the brake lining lamp... lol. Been meaning to do that for mine for quite a while now. However I kinda doubt that would help with your stereo problem, but I really have no idea how those 2 can be related.

Haha. Yeah, I would just pull the bulb, but the stereo is what's driving me nuts. Not sure how they can be related either.
Oh, and it gets worse when it's wet out. If it's dry all day it almost doesn't do it at all.
