"paradigm"????? Oooooh, I love it when you talk sexy...
Too bad there's so much info we have to assume..... the car will start
several times after the disconnect but we don't know how well. it runs, nor
do we know if he can actually drive it. A little history might be nice too.
First thing that comes to mind is that disconnecting the battery clears the
KAM... but it's hard to say that adaptive strategy could cause a no start.
I recall something about older Dodges having some sort of concern where
disconnecting the SMEC or SBEC would let them start... but I don't have to
tell you what a few years can do to the ..... ummm, what was I saying??
What I am seeing more of is when people start snooping around, they are
disturbing wire harneses... sadly, I can say that I have "fixed" cars simply
during normal testing,,, unable to recreate the original concern after doing
that. These are ones that we KNOW will be back and the customer is usually a
little irate about the return visit. It sucks to be me.....
FWIW, I spent last week at Ford school in Edmonton.... now that I have my
Master certification, can I be as big a dick as <expletive deleted>?
