    Start with the URPA diagnostic system.

    The link is no longer working. I shorted it out, but it didn't give me anything different than the flashing red light I have been getting. Any ideas?

    There's a specific shorting lead on the URPA box in the trunk.

    Another thread on URPA right next to this one. (You gotta shop around ..........)
