sounds all too familiar.... damn... I was hoping to get to Oct without any tranny repairs...

I also read that code 36 could be 3 different things, maf, transacxle and something else... anyone else read this? (found it in a book I have)

Default ill go check

B118 current
B132 current
1987 oldsmobile toronado
*not trofeo*
The codes I believe are in the BCM. It states Electrical Problem and Digs uncontrolably when I open the door, it stops digging when I start up and shift the car into from park into anything. then it doesnt do it again...

*which would be ok... but It'* anoyying and my friend mite be buying the car so he knows where I live if I scam him.. lol...
