For those not from the US, Red Neck Related is like marrying your cousin/sister, so you were related to start with.
Last year I had an engine
starting problem that I tracked down to a bad pin in the wiring
harness. So I installed a jumper around it to fix it. Afterwards my engine
tach didn't work, but it was late in the year and I knew by sound what the engine was doing. But I also noticed that the engine alarm
wasn't coming on when I started the engine (low oil
pressure) and then it occurred to me that this started at the same time as the other 2.
So after reading the wiring
diagram etc I finally just unplugged and reconnected the tach wires and it worked afterwards (was next to the harness connector for the engine start problem). Then after chasing the alarm
, including pulling the buzzer, for a few hours found that the wiring harness pin in the same harness connector had just plain corroded away (probaly was OK till I unplugged it to fix the engine starting prtoblem).
So it seems that electrical
problem are all related, just like red neck cousins. And to top it they are a three-some! From now on I'm always going to think related red necks when I have a problem as they probably have something to do with each other!
