did not move at all. I believe it moved

What is a hot shot? Whatever, it sounds like you fried something electrical with the "hot shot"

Has anyone checked FLUID LEVELS on this vehicle Lately? What engine and mileage?

I believe it is coffee of some sort.

Thanks for the info. It was a blown fuse. Maybe three dollars. Thank god for a good father that would not have me waist money to take the car to the shop so that they could tell me anything.
