Wow still no answers!
Technician: Mike Mcmillan, Shop Foreman/Triage Tech replied 4 years ago

Wow still no answers? I have asked multiple questions which only basic partial responses have been given back. We need to have as much information as possible to cover all of the diagnostic steps. I was still waiting to hear if this unit has DRL just as an example
