arcing coming from the behind the passenger seat.  I had the battery in and out 
few times for charging and forgot to tighten the connections.  Hey, worth a 

Good luck!

I guess after a few more years of driving the B's, I'll get to the point

Thanks for the suggestions; I'll try to be more observant the next time.
And thanks to EVERYONE who submitted a suggestion!
I'm taking a 5 hour drive this weekend; hopefully I'll not have to make any
observations other than the wind blowing off what little hair I have left:-0
