The Jurassic vs. Technology

RAV4 Hybrid Limited

Well, the internet came back on last night. Fitfully at first, hesitantly, it had coaxed along. Next, Direct TV came back too. Crisis solved. We will be all ready for Cyber Monday tomorrow. With this overarching issue that overshadowed everything else now solved, let us now turn to my other technology issue. Last week the RAV4’s infotainment screen started coming up with a message complaining/asking for service. This was different from the oil change light that resides on the dashboard. I’ve already figured out how to deal with that. This was different. I made an appointment at the dealer and took the car in. The service rep said that I was a little early for service, but they were more than ready to do the work. An hour later, we got the car back, along with its annoying message. I was already on my way and didn’t want to turn around and go back, so I decided to fix it myself. After much pawing over message boards, I came to realize that the RAV4 wasn’t asking to be serviced, hence the rep’s comment. One cryptic Suggest entering the name and address of the dealership. I tried it and it worked. The startup message had disappeared. Another victory for the Jurassic over technology.
