Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


It might be hard to just throw an answer out there with running some sort of diagnostics on the vehicle, I could suggest as a starting point making sure the ECM is fully plugged in and corrosion free, clean the harness connector and use some dielectric grease.
