Update to the intermittent electrical problems...

All is well since I found that loose wire. It was the stereo noise suppression ground and I believe I heard it described as a hot ground, so its no surprise it caused a lot of abnormalities and electrical errata while it was dancing around the engine compartment.

Even since I repaired that wire, the car has run without flaw.

Tx for the update!

I remember this saga. The small wires to that RF suppressor ground get broken easily, you aren't the first with the issue.

Glad it got found & fixed, solving the electrical gremlins that were driving you nuts!
