This one has the correct spelling: I got out my trusty red rubber eraser and cleaned all of the fuses and relay contacts. Some of them were rather fuzzy. It was around 40 degrees today and it did not display any symptoms of the previous problems. I should wait for a longer test period before I declare it fixed permanently. Thanks for the advice, it seems to work so far! "Christopher A.
