I have had a problem with a short circuit in my GT that doesn't affect its running or driving but prevents the interior lights coming on or the clock working. Have fixed it once, but it promptly shorted again.

I forgot about it (another one of a million small jobs to do) until this afternoon when I was looking at the wood trim panels in the GT as they need refurbishing. To get a feel for how much work is involved with taking out all the knobs in the centre panel, I gave the 'panel' knob a slight tweak. Lo and behold the clock started working again, the interior lights came on... Even the light in the back that comes on when you open the rear hatch now works.

Obviously the problem is till there somewhere; but the Prince of Darkness walks a strange path...

(It's not true that Lucas, in 1947, tried to get Parliament to repeal Ohm's Law. They withdrew their efforts when they met too much resistance).
