also, i'm on another lead with that too. i might have actually found it! yes!
and the estimate is about 12 hours or more @ $100 an hour. so < $1200. fuck that.
that's why i don't let me wife take the car in without me looking at it, cause they always try to overcharge her. Doesn't matter where she takes it.
As for your electrical problem, it reminds me of when I was in the navy and we were searching for an electrical ground (ships are ungrounded) and we looked for about 6 months, and we finally found it in a piece of equipment that was only a month old.
The moral of the story is, it can be multiple things and you have to look and re-look. good luck with it.
