Believe me, I don't think I will ever go back to this dealership for any work. In the time that I have spent diagnosing the problem and chasing stuff based on their misinformation, they should be paying me $400. ?? WTH for?
Sorry for the rant....It just frustrates me. At least now I know the problem and can now fix it.
Hmmm, interesting. Instead of first looking at the stoplight switch, you start pulling fuses? I don't know who taught you you how to diagnose an electrical problem, but it's safe to say they didn't know much.
Then you can't figure out which is the correct fuse to pull looking for a circuit that wont shut off?
Now it's the dealers fault that you couldn't put the incorrectly pulled fuse back in the slot it came from?
I'll bet you didn't bother to inform the service writer that you had spent hours "working" on it and the tech may want to thoroughly check everything just to look for mistakes/problems you may have caused, in addition to the original problem, did you? I thought not.
Buy yourself a Haynes or Chiltons. They're made for people that have no clue how to repair a vehicle.
In the time you just spent reading this, most on this site would've had the problem nailed w/o pulling one fuse.
