Just wanna punch the guy that came up with that idea in the face! Whew... ok I feel better now.
And yes I know it can be shut off but it automatically comes back on at 40mph.
My F150 has it too but I've heard it's defeatable. ...havent had a chance to test it yet

Been there done that.
I always get at it from the bottom..
And yeah its so stupid...putting it over the starter so it gets covered in oil.
Hmm lets see...lets drench oil all over the starter and the positive and negative cable connections...yeah thats not a fire hazard!

What do you call a seatbelt retractor that doesn't retract? Cuz that's what I hate today.

Tomorrow I'm going to hate the weak and worn out gas struts on my topper glass that I haven't gotten around to replacing yet.
