Re: Dashboard Blackout!

OP Here: Mattmag, bingo! At the last min, before I was going to give up and button everything back up, I found the thick black wire bolted to a stud where the engine & transmission join. SO... Here's what I just completed:

1.) Remove battery, clean, clean posts
2.) Remove battery tray & clean (required for cable-trace)
3.) Removed & cleaned smaller neg cable, bolted to chassis below battery tray
4.) For the heck of it, removed large red cable from alternator & cleaned.
5.) Removed & cleaned large negative cable bolted between engine & trans
6.) Removed & reseated every relay in the fuse panel
7.) Switched Starter Relay with Frnt wiper relay (same p/n)
8.) Switched Fuel Pump relay with rear blower relay (same p/n)

We'll see what happens.....
