I just talked to the mechanic. He said that he's checked every wire and they visually looked in good shape, the connectors looked good and tight, and no ground open. He said that the next he plans on doing in sequence are as followed:
1. Use a temporary power wire to connect the circuit and stop using the original power wire. If that fixes the problem, then he will replace the power wire for a permanent fix.
2. Repeat #1 on the ground wire.
3. Replace the connecting pins into the TCM and the ECM.
4. Replace the TCM
5. Replace the ECM
This is a trial and error approach. If #1 does not work, try #2. If #2 does not work, try #3. He will keep on until he's done #5. When asked what's next if #5 still does not fix the problem. He gave no answer. And he said he's about 50% confident that one of these 5 trials will fix the problem.
What's your opinion? Thanks!
