    Super Mouse (2) Update

    Well, I got my truck fixed and everything works fine and no warning lights! Who fixed it? ME! The wiring harness has 13 wires in it that all were cut completely in half! The harness cut in half in two places made the job a little tougher to do. I did the job without pulling the fender and grill off, as the dealer said it's the only way the job can be done! Cost me about 50 bucks in supplies, not $1500! So I guess you could say I put $1450 in my pocket, not the dealers! Took me 7 hrs, not 2 plus days. At first, I wondered if I could get my hands in where one section was cut in half, then I remembered attaching heater cables on an MGB heater working through a finger hole, and the decision was made. The toughest part was matching some wires of the same color but different tracers, man those skinny lines are hard to see! Old eyes not like they were at a younger age. Had to go through an electronic store to get the very small heat shrinkable, crimp style butt connectors for the 22/24 wire. As they say, "All's well that ends well"! Another PJ

    Good work Paul, I'm glad you got it fixed for a decent price and only spent a day on it.
    Cheers,

    The only place they don't work well is in the logging country, those mice can walk a rolling log!
