That is one of the issues. The light only goes out when you completely turn the ignition switch to the off position. Other than that it is on constant for unknown reasons. Even when attempting to pull codes. As for the computer that shops use to read codes, that is one price I have attempted to avoid as the last time I had a shop hook up and $600.00 later it still ran the same with the shop saying they could not find anything wrong. It was fixed after I swapped out the distributor doing the same as what I have this time, just replacing components. This is probably a band-aid approach, but it worked up until now.
As for the light staying on constant, this was why I thought their was a short somewhere in the wiring harness, but have checked the harness which is good. (Three days of chasing wires)
At the moment I am attempting to determine a reliable, affordable, proficient mechanic here in the El Paso, TX area as PCS time is soon approaching and the wife will be using our primary vehicle and will hopefully be using the 86. Heck, I don't even know where I am PCS'ing to yet.
Please continue to give me assitance as the CAT is one thing I had totally forgotten to check and I gladly appreciate your assistance.
