He'* got a dual optima battery setup as well. His power delivery is obviously not the problem if he'* got 14.8 golden like that. Clean off the key, the VATs might be getting pissy, but if it worked right after I doubt it. Starter could just be wonky.

Didn't Todd say something about the trans mount, not motor mount?
Does the key itself now act as the resistor? Because, on my 2000, there is no visible resistor pellet for the VATS...unless it'* inside the key...
Ask GM how much a new key costs...


They're almost as bad as the government. A million bucks for a toilet seat...

Taylor check the purple wire on your ignition box. When we installed the headers that one day, Alex accidently pulled the pin out of the socket and we had to repair it. It'* the same wire your remote start taps into. I think the wire stripping we did may have come loose.

Well problem did NOT happen once today, pretty weird.

I've been meaning to check that Purple wire Kyle, I found it once resting on the headers part of the wire loom is melted flat, I peeled it back to check the wire and suprisingly it looked fine, no signs of melting at all.

Everyone at my work thinks its stereo related, bass shook a connection loose. Wouldn't doubt it though.

List is growing for my service date monday. doubt they will find this problem since it probably won't happen again of for them at least.

Yes, engine mount. Let me know how the look and what the dealer says about your intermediate shaft (recall right?). I'm interested in doing this as well.
