    Yes. You betcha.

    2012 Kia Optima BCM issues.

    So apparently, your previous statement in reply #3 was untrue? Please explain. Glad you got "everything but the horn" working again. Did you install and program the new BCM?

    How is your coolant level? Have you had to top it up? Sometimes the 3.8 manifold melts by the EGR inlet and coolant starts to leak into manifold airway, which fouls out the sparkplugs.

    Was the key turned on during fuse testing? Was testing done by touching tip of tester to tiny hole in end of fuses? Sometimes the tester tip has to be very sharp to make a connection in the tiny hole. I have been fooled by this in the past.

    2011 Hyundai Elantra Front Left Turn signal flashes fast

    My "go to" ground point at the rear is trunk latch striker. Usually the latch creates a shiny spot there. An 1156 bulb has only one filament. No shared ground it that bulb socket.

    2011 Hyundai Elantra Front Left Turn signal flashes fast

    The "a" usually means the bulb is amber colored. If a bulb has two functions which share a ground circuit, and the ground circuit fails, funny things happen.

    2011 Hyundai Elantra Front Left Turn signal flashes fast

    Does the front T/S bulb have two functions? (Signal and Park light) Does the rear T/S bulb have two functions? (Signal and Park light)

    ac leak

    Sometimes a new shaft seal needs a little run-time to close the gap. (I'm going to go ahead and assume that the leak was at the shaft seal)

    P0135 Chevy 2004 Z71 5.3L

    As per Kev's pdf, check for open circuit between pins C and D. Open circuit?---replace sensor.

    This goes back to an ongoing post, not a problem. adding dual batteries to an E350.

    If your indicator is "on steady" with key on, engine off, then a volt guage should act the same way (with resistor removed or bypassed). If you wired the guage into the circuit BEFORE the resistor, you could have both guage and indicator, I think.

    The guage would be active whenever your relay was energized (the relay you set up to send power to the isolator). Describe for me how that relay acts if you turn the key on, but the engine is not started.

    Yes, I think that would work, but the engine would have to be running for the guage to work. If you want to know "How much voltage is left in my frame battery after running my room lights for an hour?"...wiring to the dash indicator wire would be the wrong way to go.

    Maybe I am asking this question in the wrong way, but...what do you want the guage to tell you? If you want to know "the condition" of the frame battery, a volt meter would be a better choice if you want to know the "state of charge"....(how many volts in the battery). To easily monitor frame...
