Great info! That's exactly what my 00 528 does. The local dealer suggested that his shop can "re-build" the ENTIRE SYSTEM for me. Can you explain to a DIY'er where the final stage resistor is located and what it looks like? This site rocks. Many thanks from a new member for all the $$$$$ I've saved in tha past week. Shouild also mention that I have built probably a dozen small block Chevrolet engines but was completely intimidated by the six cylinder beneath the hood of my BMR.
