Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I'm here to help 365 days a year, but not every hour of the day. I try to prevent delays as much as possible. Please understand I am not there and can only advise based on what you tell me. Let's get started.

Does it attempt 4th or does it stay in 3rd?

What was the original failure?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It keep in 3. I think it would be the range sensor, but in this moment i don't have the manner to measure it. If you have a diagram to measure the resistance and you would like to send me,because i'm retired and I don't a scanner.
