    on again off again DESS post

    It's a strange one so I'm loading the ole flare gun up..maybe somebody can save the nice older guy a couple of bucks

    his 4-tec may have a flakey key post..he beat on the thing for almost an hour the other day when it flat out refused to give him the time of day..then brought it down to the shop where it performed flawlessly....So I put my spare post back in stock, took a rag out, gave the hood a little spit shine and sent him on his way.

    Well he called today..same problem..no beep or sign of recognition.

    Pulled into the parking lot right at lunch so I called out to him from my lounge chair ( yeah, after labor day it's almost a ghost town around here) and shouted..try to start it!...of course it started..quite entertaining watching him throw a stomping fit around his pickup.

    Anyhow..I'm inclined to change out the post..just casue they fall like raindrops when they get 5+ years old.

    besides the obvious hairline break in a fuse..anything else to consider?

    I'll be doing an extensive magnet test tomorrow to see if the switch is closing, but I'd hate to replace the post then have the same problem pop up next week.

    I just prepared him for the fact that a new post should solve his problem, but no guff if the problem continues to be elusive, as the alternate treatments ain't inexpensive.

    I'm hoping it's going to turn out to be a cold thing..so I'm getting up at the crack of dawn ( or slightly before) to see if it just doesn't like being out in the sub 60 weather. we get at night. ( still hot enough in a car to melt a cassette tape)

    guess I'll hook it up and see if it's got like a zillion communication errors logged after I probe the post's connections a bunch
