That will not be hard to do.
Thanks. Ran out of daylight (and positivity) yesterday, so took a break. I'm talking to Bob this morning. Since I've eliminated the VR, alt, tach, and fuel gauge from previous testing, it seems to me it's got to be the heater or wiper circuit. Will post what I find out and next steps.
