Default OK - here's a good one...

Every once in awhile (twice tonite on the way home from work) when dimming my headlights I get a TRAC light, a CEL, AND a downshift! Kind of interrupts your concentration on the oncoming vehicle, you know??

Obviously this is electrical; just seeing if anyone out there had a similar problem, or if there is a known issue...

2002 Touring, 141K, Automatic, nothing special.

There have been many reports of crazy happenings when the battery gets low in a PT.
How is your battery and main cables?

For safety sake I suggest always leaving your high beams on... Here in Canada the other drivers dig it, so much so that they flash theirs back at you.... Sign of appreciation I guess, it's a Canadian thing.

The Turbo is strong, fast and reliable.. People that don't understand the love of a PT, probably don't deserve to.

Hey. Arkansas driver's do the same thing. But here, drivers also sometimes show their respect with a solute of gunfire as they go by.
