    Well the good news is that I've fixed the license plate issue and just about everything else that I'm capable of fixing. The bad news is that the gremlins still live. The G85 fault is back and I've...

    I've checked power for the abs controller on j104 (pins 2, 6, & 23 if memory serves) is there another place I should be checking? Perhaps the referenced terminal 30?

    Queue the Circus music, here we go again!

    Well, after doing some additional troubleshooting to see if I could sort out the G85 SAS issues (checking for voltages and such) and finding nothing I put the ABS controller connector back on and ran...

    Yeah, what Jack said...

    Thanks Jack. I've sort of deduced that short of the car spontaneously combusting like a Tesla it'd probably make sense to you. Relativity made sense to Einstein too but I'm still a little :confused:...

    Jef, I have done the calibration to no effect. Interestingly enough the ABS code was not "zeroed out" as it seems is a common brain fart for these devices. The proper coding was in place but I went...

    Hi Jef,

    Here are my readings:

    Pin 2 = 12 Volts / Pin 6 = 12 Volts / Pin 23 = 0 Volts / Pin 11 = 12 Volts (not sure if that matters..) Pins 1 & 5 are good grounds.

    So how important is pin 23...
