I'm sorry I just needed to renew this one. I hope no one is offended.

Speaking of remote starter solenoids...

Back in the day we had a department secretary (remember when we could call them secretaries?) who had a Maverick IIRC.  Single, pretty young lady.   One day as she was heading out for lunch, starting her car as I walked past.  She freaked out at the weird noise it was making, that I recognised as the starter staying engaged after the engine started.  I opened the hood, took off my shoe, and whacked the starter solenoid, perfectly placed for easy access on the inner fender.  Problem solved.

Of course, the reason I recognised what was going on was that my Mom's '64 Falcon had done the same thing a few years back, and the same solution worked.  And my Sunbeam Tiger did it, too,  years later  Again, a solid whack solved the problem.

And no, it lead to nothing with the young lady.  I'd learned to believe in that old phrase involving swimming pools...
