So your still manual 5 speed or have you changed it to auto ???


I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!

I suggest you have ur car scanned. if there is anything wrong you did in the electrical dept... it will show. That will provide you a good place to start.

OR, activate the self-diagnostics and count the Check Engine Light blinks. It can point you in some direction from which to proceed...

TIP: is your engine properly grounded? ;-)
