Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

I can help you figure this out if you have a test light and are going to be doing the diagnostics yourself?

Hello again Chris here,

  1. I have to assume you were not pleased with my help, because you have not replied or rated the post.
  2. What would you like to do regarding your question now?
  3. Do you still need help? Please reply I want you to get equal to or more than what you paid for.
  4. This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. That can prevent me from being able to post answers to your replies.

Thanks Chris
