While visiting our friends in Wyoming Nicole finally put a new ignition switch in Annie. She then promptly thanked us by escalating her previously extremely random No-Start issue.
So, once we had settled in to our new digs Nicole began digging into Annie in a way that has long been deserved.
Loads of cleaning up, re-grounding, inspections and diagnostics later... Annie was
now consistently providing a No-Start condition. Um... it was supposed to get better.
A few more days of continuity, resistance and OHM’ing later and other than some corrosion nothing had truly revealed itself to be the culprit. So, there was only one thing left to do. It was time to put our girl back together and cross our eyes, fingers and toes.
Certainly, this tale is not over. Our Annie is 26 years old and most of what we’ve found and replaced so far has been original. There will be problems. There will be inconsistencies. There will be questionable behavior. But she has served us wonderfully in our adventures and thus we allow her these quirks. For now, she’s got a little more get up in her go and we’ve got our girl back. At least until the next time she puts her foot down to remind us that she likes a little ‘Annie centered’ attention now and then.
