Problem and cause of everything happening may be the cause of the crank positiin sensor wire laying on the harmonic balancer. Hope that is the culprit

Well I spoke to soon. Its back in the shop.

Whatever is causing it is causing the courtesy bells when the door is open with the key on or the lights when you open the door. When the car acts up the bells work great. When the car is running until it causes the fuel pump fuse to pop the bells stop working.

Well the cars in the shop again..

Any possible ideas I am out of any ideas I had with this car LOl..

Ignition switch? ( The electrical part) The Riv is known to have some issues with this. How many miles on yours?

Hello, Its back in the shop.. As far as the cart has 260000 But has a rebuilt motor replaced and has about 40000 on it.

I will let the garage know about the ignition switch problems. They were working on it yesterday morning.

Also the mechanic that worked on it prior no longer is employed by the garage. he stated he fixed the Crankshaft position wire that was rubbing on the harmonic Balancer.. Well there is no signs of repair to it as well as mo signs of it rubbing anywhere. So he was doing 1 thing and saying another. So we dont know what he did in the shop to get it running for the 4-5 days it was running...

Hang in there Dave, these cars are so special it'* worth the money and frustration. I'm sure you know what I mean when it'* been running. Hopefully the guys at the shop get it figured out. I'll be watching for updates but it is tough to diagnose sitting behind a keyboard.

Well that'* encouraging, sounds like they are at least spending some time on it. A set of FSM'* would really be a good investment for any future problems. You can find them on E-Bay pretty reasonable.

Yeah I will have to pick some up soon. I stopped by the garage and they said they drove it around and picked up parts and have found nothing as of yet to what the problem is. they said they are going to put a bigger fuse in it.. I told them I did that to and it just popped the bigger fuses just as fast as the 20A fuses I put 30A'* in and it still popped them as well..

So not quite sure where to go from here lol..

They are checking the ignition wires out today so hope they find it there
