Found The Cause

Hi Guys.

The part that failed was found today. Good thing I took an extra set of eyes with me.

Although I stated that all the fuse's were good, my son (with way better vision) saw that fuse #9 in the hood fuse box was blown.

He also noted that is was a 30 amp fuse instead of a 20 amp as required.

We ran to autozone an got a few fuse's, pushed one in and VIOLA! Car started and ran fine the whole 25 miles home.

Unfortunately I believe that this had occured with the prior owner (hence the 30 amper).

Looks like it will be an intermittant problem until it goes kaput.

Thank for all the help.
