Iím going to sit in the corner and think about what Iíve done - sorry to have been a time suck
Don't worry at least it's sorted, I wish it would always work out like this...

Over looks are never a problem. Consider them lessons learned!

The jump posts under the hood have caused more than a few head scratches from everyone on the forum, which is why I said remove them clean them and then tighten them.... told you so na nanannn

Tip #124
Find the jump point under the hood (it is behind the little box on the drivers side firewall). Un bolt it, clean with wire brush, retighten and retest. The double nut vibrates loose after 100K.
