Re: [DML] Serious Megasquirt Question



I had cables but I figured why bother asking someone for help when I could just call roadside.  

The issue ended up being a wiring problem.  There wire going from the cooling fan circuit breaker to the starter was on the wrong terminal.  It is supposed to be on the unprotected side.  Instead, a previous owner put this wire on the protected side and the starter wasn't getting enough amps to do its job.
