Re: Intermittent Blower on Lowest Speed.

I disagree with the on/off scenario. A failing sodler joint in my High Mount Stop lamp relay module caused the lamp to work well after startup but after a drive into town of a few Km, it quit. Started working again after I started again the next day, then repeat ad infinitum. Also long press on brak...

Re: Intermittent Blower on Lowest Speed.

Intermittent electrical problems usually point to bad connections, my vote is fuse box solder joint.

Re: minor boot latch "issue"

As it is now in the "closed" latch position, can you not "open" it with the key?
