Best advice ever! I'm on it.

I'll report back about 12 weeks from now when the new baby is roaring down the road with me (although not likely to be top down season anymore in Wisconsin!).

Dc_wright
Thanks for a great explanation. What you're referring to is the eccentric shaft sensor? Is this something that would eventually throw a code?

Thanks again!

Please keep the ideas coming. :-)

I agree it's not a big problem but it's not right either. I like the letter idea and will pursue that. Unfortunately, the next closest dealership is 70 miles away.

I appreciate all the advice.

That helps. Thanks. I'll probably just splice the ground off the existing lighter as that seems like it may be easier.
