If the keys go down, the only other thing I know is to take it apart and try to clean the contacts with rubbing alcohol.

Looking back my dad could have bought us all new cars with cash if he wanted...Luckily he wanted to teach us good work ethics..I hated it then but am so grateful now..We all had used second hand cars but they were nice too. And we took care of em cause we worked for every penny of it! I hope your Dtr find a better job soon!
Gabulldawg, the limited edition holiday flavors are my favorite! I get so excited when they come out!!
My husband is always talking about teaching the kids good work ethics. I have three teenagers, the two oldest are driving already and my youngest just got her permit. We told them if they want to drive they have to work. Its good for them. I hope that one day they will look back like you have and appreciate it!!

I know this because Mr. was terminated some years ago for a health issue that required a couple months' recuperation, during which he couldn't do the work he was hired for. So they dumped him. We were going to take the employer to court until our lawyer explained the facts to us. It was a tough time.

This is slightly off-topic, but it still makes me seethe. When I was diagnosed with cancer in the 1980s, I had to immediately undergo a week's worth of tests at various medical centers to "stage" the cancer so doctors could plan its treatment, so I was away from the office for that workweek. When I got back, my boss's boss sat me down and said, "You know, we could terminate you for being absent more than three days without prior approval." I HAD notified them where I was and why. They didn't terminate me, but I was aghast at their tactlessness when I was still struggling with the diagnosis of a life-threatening disease. And they made me use vacation time for chemo days. Some people ...
MerryCarey, I'm so sorry that you had to go through that (((hugs)))

Just keep using them. If the contacts have just been coated with the pop, it may wear off.

Also have you tried using both ends of the space bar? Most of them have a contact on both sides. So if one side stops working the other side sometimes will still work.
