We have another great electrical system mystery story for this month’s Pro Resource article, this time involving the most popular vehicle on American roads. So, we hope that it helps our professional audience short cut to a quick diagnostic solution, thanks to this great case study write up by Robert in Delaware. In it, he describes a difficult vehicle he was brought in to troubleshoot. The main clues were that the factory-installed remote start system was inoperable and the battery was experiencing an excessive drain when the vehicle was parked. Robert suspected that these symptoms were related, but utilized a logical, deliberate diagnostic strategy to confirm the relationship and pinpoint the source of the problem. It’s a great writeup and could just save you a similar headache.
