I was review this website on memory loss. The connector came loose off of the battery. Seems like ever since then my interior lights will not automatically go off and my ABS light is on. Is it possible I lost some memory and what do I do now to find out?

    Computers can get a spike in voltage if the battery becomes undone with the engine running. This voltage spike can damage sensitive electronic components. Maybe with the engine off disconnect the battery for ten or fifteen minutes and reconnect see if the problem goes away. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
