please always remember there is no better place to troubleshoot a vehicle than taking it to a shop. As online techs we have many years of experience on a wide variety of vehicles ans alot of resources to use to help customers as yourself, but vehicles are finicky and sometimes it turns out to be the obvious...sometimes not. Please leave a positive rating for me as its the only way i get credit for my answers. have a good day, and once again, glad you got it fixed. cheers.
