Rick is it possible you missed ground when your "Gremlins" were loose? Your weren't cleaning the inside and outside at the same time? I know it is quicker, but the dripping headliner always bothers me....

not sure what happen, though i think it happen when i rolled it forward with out starting the car......... i think it (the car) thought it was being tampered with so it shut down all electirics, at least thats what it seemed like. ... after i did get it started, got battery checked, and its like new. all is fine now. thanks for your ideas!!
rick
