PostSubject: Learn something new every day or you're never too old to learn   Sun Mar 03, 2013 3:20 pm

Well yesterday was the day, we had to move the youngest daughter into her new apartment on the seacoast area of NH. As the roads are clear, I took the RMW out of hibernation and rented 5x8 Uhaul trailer. I have one of those wiring harnesses that you plug in to the harness for the tail lights. Picked up the trailer the night before, lights worked as planned.

Got her stuff all loaded up and headed down, about 125 miles away. Made it, unloaded, probably there for a couple hours. I noticed the tail lights were on, hmm. I started the car up, no problem, let it run for a few minutes. Not wanting to deal with a dead battery, I just disconnected the wiring harness either side, lights out. Figured when I'm ready to go, I'll plug everything back in.

So, I'm ready to go, start the car..........click, click. Luckily there's a guy there and I get a jump, starts right up, but it's not running right. Barely running, and then stalls and won't start. Having had a fuel pump go before, I knew that's what's going on. I have a short 2x4 and do what other guys have said works, bang the gas tank. No luck. Get out my AAA card, I guess I'll get flat bedded home. I call, am on hold. Then the light bulb went one. PLUG THE HARNESS BACK TOGETHER, STUPID! I did, started right up. Headed to Captain Newick's for a liquid lunch. I needed it.

Learned something yesterday, those harnesses by the tail lights, also control the fuel pump.

Doh!

We all learned that at one of Fred's wagonfest sunday smash up. We stripped the good parts off one of the cars to be demolished just before, then it wouldn't run! Turns out someone cut out the tailight harness. Pieced it back together and it was good. Very Happy
