- The battery is also new as of maybe 3 months ago so that shouldn't be an issue. I will recheck the battery connections to make sure they are clean and secure. Is the chassis ground underneath the back seat by the battery or is there another location?
When I talked with the mechanic he told me it was a sensor that keeps the cam and crank in sync I was thinking he meant the cam position sensor. I think I will pick up a code reader so I can monitor the computer a little closer. Thanks
There are a number of grounds in the RIv, that is part of the problem.
One is by the battery in back. You must use the corret Group 79 battery with the vent piping, if you don't the fumes from teh battery corrode the electricals under the rear seat, not to mention rot out the floor.
There is another important ground behind the drivers side kick panel, and another (for the starter) under the hood on teh frame rail not too far fore of the motor mount. THAT one is prone to breakign when you try to undo it, you can fix it by drilling it out an putting a stainless bolt in its place and use anti-seize so it does not rust shut again.
Another ground is under the ignition module, under the coils. Before you mees with that one you have to get heat sink grease to cover the heat sink plate or else the plate will corrode (it is mill finish aluminum) and overheat, makign the module fail. actually come to think of it if someone took the coils off before and did not put them back properly with the insulator and everything, that could be contributing to your troubles...
There is at least one more ground on the firewall in the engine compartment.
