Mrboca witekm Well sorry boca maybe my compressor was in cahoots with yours, although I think 20+ years is probably good for any car part too. I’m glad I didn’t try to tackle it myself since I...

Thanks, I don't have the electrical expertise but will ask my mechanic to take a look next time I see him, maybe this is why the rest feature has never seemed to work that I recall.
