I thought that I wounded my car while installing a MDC Cruise Control.
When I was first disconnecting the battery positive terminal, my wrench handle arced on the body, so I thought I blew a fuse. I turned the key back on and had power but didn't think to start the car. I disconnected the negative terminal then the positive and continued with the installation.
After installing everything I reconnected the battery and found no power to the speedometer pod. After speaking with Smart Madness several times and rechecking the connections, I uninstalled the cruise control and put the car back to original.
The speedometer pod had power but the car would not start and there were 3 bars that flashed where the shift indicator is displayed. (see photo)
Has anyone had anything like this happen? I pulled and looked at all the fuses under the dash but none appeared to be blown.
I had given up and was going to push the car aside and when I put the shifter out of park, there was a lot of knocking in the engine comartment. The bars were replaced by the N, and the transmission had reset it self. I put the car in park and turned the key and the car started. It drove fine so I reinstalled the cruise control again. IT WORKED FINE.
I am happy again.
