"The fuse information is usually in the owner's manual.  Is the problem just the front side markers (running lights) or the front and rear ones?  Are the tail lamps working?  And last, but not least, are the bulbs good? "

2011 Jetta Running Lights

I just replaced the headlamps in my moms 2011 VW Jetta SE 2.5 Sedan. They are now working fine but the running lights are not working. I thought I may have accidentally turned them off so I did the trick with the turn signal lever, and they still didn't go on. I am wondering if maybe there is a blown fuse. Where can I find a fuse layout that tells me witch fuse is for the running lights? See More

Living Out Stick-to-itiveness

I just finished reading the article on stick to itiveness as one may guess. One of the things I have been finding  very difficult is knowing when I am actually living out a virtue. I am pretty sure this may happen to others. Any way I wanted to give examples that I think I do not as a boast but to just help make sure I am noticing things right. 1. Sink Your Ships: I started grad school in Systems Engineering. I grew up being technical and while SE is technical its less hands on. I told my self…See More

Tools For The Job

This is another question I have regarding going into a Systems Engineering graduate program.Engineers have their tools. I presume that the same can be said for systems engineers. What tools should I read up on that can help me get a leg up during my program.As an example. In my Engineering undergrad, MATLab and SciLab were used to an extent as well as MultiSim,LTSPice etc. So for Systems Engineering, is Microsoft Office something I will have to become good friends with. How about SysMil, UML?See More

50 gallon water heater heats 25 gallons

Brand new 50 gallon water heater still can't fill a standard sized tub, but starts giving tepid water at 25 gals or so.  Service call couldn't find a problem.  I'm beginning to wonder if I'm crazy to expect a hot bath,  or if there's a spell in the house.  Any idea what's wrong?   I'm planning to call the installer again and if he can't fix it have him take it out...but will the next be better?  it has to be the heater, right?See More
