Re: [DML] Re: Battery for Delorean


It seems that the Zilla man has a serious problem with admitting that one of 
his products has failed. A friend of mine had a problem with his fan zilla 
on the way to Memphis show. It would click on and off like crazy for no 
reason and regardless of engine temperature. We could hear the relay 
chattering and it put so much load on the electrical system of the car that 
I could actually see the lights dim and the volt gauge would show all those 
current spikes. We traced the problem to the fan zilla module. After 
unplugging it and using regular jumper everything went back to normal.
When we met Bob Zilla at the show I asked him if he could test the module 
for me but he refused claiming that it must be a problem with the car. When 
I asked him to lend me another module to make sure it's not the car, he also 
refused. I did some more testing and came to a conclusion that the fan zilla 
is faulty. I was 100% sure. Still, Bob would rather start yelling at me than 
admit that the module is bad. I was really surprised that he refused to 
check it and refused even the remote possibility that it has failed. This is 
not the customer service we expected. Anyone who works with electronic 
circuits know that they fail sometimes.... Bob didn't realize that as of 
There were some people who witnessed our conversation and they were all very 
surprised to hear those words from Bob. Sooo... we had to get rid of the 
faulty module and went back to the good old jumper. He never installed any 
more zillas in his car and neither did I.
