First I want to thank you for having these forums.
I replaced the battery twice, and on the occasions it runs, it appears to charge just fine.
When it is sunny out, no problem but when it rains I have to start it every 12-16 hours or the battery is tapped. THen the expensive problem - it won't fire, just keeps turning as long as it is jumped. This has happened 3 times and the first time it cost me 1200$ for diagnostics and a new computer; the next time (outside the 3 month warranty of course) they say the computer etc they replaced were working and charged me another 600$+ for new coill, wires, etc ... so
you guessed it, the bettery died and now it just won't fire.
I can't afford this, I came off LTD and don't work full time which means no sale for a lemon, no replacing it, and no $$ for repairs.
However, I wonder about the aftermarket alarm, it affects the ignition cutoff, and also there is a sticker that says something about a fuel pump switch if the vehicle won't start. Do you know where I might find that on the Canadian model?
Thank you in advance for any and all suggestions.
