Buffy......You got any power at you battery, or any way to tell if you have power there?
I taped every exposed ground. So far so good.
I am not sure of the theory behind this, I can tell you that whatever it is, it has worked so far.JimD said:Please help me understand the theory here.
MUGSANDLUKE said:It is very common for certain wires to short to ground when the weather is wet or evn just damp. If the wiring is old or has any slight defect, the moisture allows the current to jump from the wire to ground, thereby shorting the connection and preventing a cold, wet start, or it can even cause misfires while the engine is running. Some of the older foreign cars are famous for this type of problem and with the increased ignition voltages in the newer cars, wires have to be kept in pristine condition to prevent such shorts.
