Space car?

Normally what mechanics see in January is tough electrical problems.

I suppose you could blame it on the extreme temperatures that occur in January, from very cold to Chinook winds that bring warm air then freezing temperatures in just a few hours.  These conditions can surface electrical problems that were waiting to happen.

Today's automobile is awash in electrical devices, micro processors,  connections, cables, relays, switches, integrated computers, gauges, etc. etc..  Your modern car contains more computers and processing power than the Apollo space command module did, that went to the moon.  If you could put rockets on your vehicle you would have not trouble navigating around our solar system with a few modifications to the computer programs.

That said, with all that electrical apparatus, it is no wonder that something eventually goes wrong.  And most of the time it likes to pick January to do it.
