[DML] Re: a few tech questions

Jeremy, perhaps one issue with your DeLorean can be resolved by 
reading the following and I quote, "On early vehicles (prior to VIN 
2547), the starter solenoid's operating voltage, in certain 
conditions, was not high enough to ensure a consistant, reliable 
operation.  This condition was displayed by a voltage drop 
characteristic in the main wiring harness on vehicles with slightly 
discharged batteries.  To correct this condition a starter circuit 
modification was introduced into production starting at VIN 2548".

The rest can be found at

My DeLorean VIN SCEDT26T4BD002261 has 17 digits unlike the one being 
sold by the IRS at auction with only 16 digits.  Somewhere, somehow, 
somebody left one digit out.

I feel for your DeLorean having so many issues at the same time.  
Mine usually has just one or two at a time.  For example high idle 
at 1,600 rpm's.  Nearly identical to Mike's problem 
in message number 58751.
