Q: Cabbage moth. Hi there, I live in Melbourne, Australia and nearly every plant in my garden has been ruined this year by the cabbage moth larvae. They will eat almost anything. I have tried natural methods, insecticides, all to no avail. I see the white moth fluttering around, and am considering buying a butterfly net to catch the little devils which seems to be the only thing left to do. Any tips?  -- Sumanaju Reply

Hyundai Sonata. I have a 1991 Hyundai Sonata. It used to have an alarm system but when I got it used all that was left was a blinking light. When I go to start my  car sometimes it just clicks and sometimes I have to click it many times  before it will start. I know the battery, starter and just about everything connected to it works great. I've been told that because of this alarm system the mother board is telling it something so it

won't start.  Could this be true or what do you know about these cars. Also there is a  little fuse box connected to the battery positive terminal. There are 2 fuses  and something that looks like a jumper. Even the dealership doesn't seem to know much about these cars. What and where can I find this jumper or whatever it is? Also my battery went dead one time and now my radio  won't come on.. I don't have the code because I bought it used. Is the only  way I can get it working is pull the radio and get some number off of it and send that to the factory to get the code? It also started getting the check engine light on coming on recently. The fluids are all okay, it doesn't  boil over and the temperature stays the same. When I turn the heater on it  gets real, real hot and then the light will go off. I've been told this is  normal but it never used to do this. I think something is heating the engine up  but I can't figure out what. Please. please help me if you can.  -- Carol Pickett Reply  (Ref:0643d)
