Uhmm....

While working on my L1-L4 problem (code 5008) I found that in transmission failsafe under service menu I get a "transmission failsafe resistor" error...

Ok, makes sense, but I was hoping someone could tell me which $#&!!** resistor it is and where.

I know know that it's NOT the classification resistor so it must be with the DME or canbus. (Right?)

It could be related to the transfer case resistor if there is a wiring problem. (break in wire or bad connectors)

Wow, I hope you don't have an error like my unexplained "Deactivation criterion for window operation: error" It's there but no searches or info were found to ID it correctly.

The gear selector may be an issues. A search found this problem.

Swapped that already...

Classification resistor is showing good but failsafe resistor shows as (error)

failsafe resistor could mean fuseable link

That's what I thought but it is able to be reset via the Foxwell NT-510.

fuseable link or failsafe resistor is likely burnt and not resettable. What circuit are you working on?

Fusible link is a fancy way to say thin piece of wire hard wired into the circuit.

I know that's why this ability to be reset via Foxwell is making me think it's some sort of canbus controlled switch that just happens to be named as failsafe resistor....

Whatever it is I'd like to find out where that little bastard is and replace it...

Any chance it's inside the EGS?
