Hey SQM, man I just spent over 20 minutes typing not my forte at all) moved my phone so keyboard was positioned better inadvertently pushed a side button or something wiping out what I had typed so far. Hahaha.
Starting over, going to condense this but was going to follow up with pictures in another reply anyway.
Took quick look at car last night, it was dark and my buddy was pressed for time, will get a pic and want to look under hood again to be accurate on what most likely caused problem and include in follow up.
Found that one of the connections/wire to post/stud in the what I now know is the fuse battery distribution block was so lose it could be moved up and down between nut & plate. I went in house to get driver with insulated grips, wasn't sure if the wire was hot.
As you know DC packs a wallop, tool
touches something that completes circuit while tightening connector, hand holding tool is now part of the circuit.
When I got back outside he had it tightened and had to get rolling.
I'm not positive of which one was lose, if he isn't sure either. I'll know by looking at block again. I don't think it was #4, I did some searching online earlier get informed on how that block is configured.
If I understood it and source of info was correct #4 is aux battery. #3 power steering module 1 and 2 interior fuse block. #4 is independent of #s 1, 2 and 3 which are connected by a plate which allows power to be distributed across the three. Is that accurate?
I didn't have time to clear the code but it cleared itself rather quickly, I assume after a certain amount of cycles.
It appears that lose connection was the problem. I will check with him to see if the rough idle has improved.
Will definitely send reply with accurate details asap.
Sorry for such a long ass text.
I have to laugh when texting with friends, family etc. On phone, 20+ minutes typing what would take 3 minutes to say by using phone as it was intended to be used. I'm pretty certain theses things have a feature that can be used to make a call.
Be in touch soon, also I have told 3-4 people this is the site to use if stuck on car repair. Your thoroughness with answer ie: attached docs, link to step by step instructions to get to problem is impressive and greatly appreciated.
Thanks man. Will post again when I have better details. I could be mistaken on #4 not the one that was lose, was rushing and didn't have chance to look closely and take pic. Will have that info in next reply.
