Strange fix, I'm not familiar with your year but it could be a relay or somehting, someone else would know better

Well a swift kick is standard repair procedure for repairing anything. Seriously nothing gives you faster results.

Since it seemed to do something in that area I'd agree that it'* probably a fuse or relay, possibly a wire.

The relays are under the hood. There is a fuse box behind the glove box. Take a look there. I would also check all your battery cables on both sides. clean them up good.

Try taking some duct tape and just tape it in. That will get you by until you really fix it.

It'* about 8 bolts/screws to pull the dash. Then you have great access to the fuse/relay center on the passengerside A pillar.



You could pop the pins out one at a time and tighten them. That would be the correct way to get a better connection.

Poor connections cause heat, heat causes fire. Fire + Bonneville = Bad day.
