^^ Although it's never happened to me, I've seen this same thing reported a number of times on various auto forums.

And just an aside that I can never understand why so many people just hang on parts instead of trying to do a bit of research and diagnose problems. I guess maybe it seems like the easiest thing to do, but so often it works out just the opposite.
