    I cleaned the 2 grounds above the headlights. Also the ground on top of the frame at the battery side. The grounds connected to the battery.
    The ground on top of the frame close to the rear bumper.
    The 2 grounds located behind the taillights. And even swapped the complete taillights and wiring.

    Changed the 2 front blinker bulbs and non of this solves the problem.

    Not sure where to look next I hope one of you can advise me what would be the next point to check
    Changed the headlight switch and changed a melting fuse in a aditional wire that had been added by the previous owner.

    The wire is in to bypass the key. I'll restore it after it passes the anual inspection.

    Courage to change the things I can,

    After more than 5000 miles on the MVPA TMC19 Lincoln Highway Convoy, changed oil, oil filter, fuel filter, rotated tires, greased all zerk fittings and replaced the rubber flex line at the transmission.
    Truck ran great and I only had one issue with a weeping #7 injector return line. Cut 3/8" off at the injector and reinstalled the line. No more leaking after that.

    I never heard of the "MVPA TMC19 Lincoln Highway Convoy" . Where was this at ? Looks like a desert area.

    Just getting pissed.


    My M1031 bench fits me fine. A little tight but completely usable.

    I get a 1009, and I feel like I'm in a jeep, with the steering wheel in my ***** and my head hitting the ceiling... what the **** is going on here?

    I pulled seats out of an S10 since they looked a little shorter... nope...not enough to make a difference. My leg is getting caught under the steering wheel just getting in and out.... and I've had an M1009 before and didn't have that issue... grrrrr

    Got it painted, but now I'm chasing electrical gremlins...

    I need to get this on the road... it's my only vehicle..
