Hi wirtanen_123 and TY for the donation

Let me ask why you are leaving it out? Just hope it wont cause the coolant temperature sensor to react an pop the CEL when the engine is running while being tested.

Just make sure it pass the bulb test when key at On and no CEL while engine is idling-then go for the test.
