I repeated the same steps and it turned back on.

Any thoughts?
Were the headlight ribbon LEDs completely off?
I would start by checking the relay harness's connections... Making sure all are secure.

It's odd that one side would do something different than the other.

I thought that some one had the same problem earlier on. I think it turned out that one of the wire taps had not pierced the wire properly and was not making a proper connection. I think all they did was to take off the wire tap and redo it.

Edit: post 33 to 46 of this thread explain the exact problem and fix.

dont you hate that when you take the boss with you

Still send the harness maxy9 as it has the pins we will require to do the mod.

Good news that adding the pins is the fix.

Yea to be fair a bag and wallet and shoes didn't cost as much as the GTHaus exhaust , guess I'm getting old I just hate shopping centres ,oh well I'm happy she's happy win win :-) ..

On a different topic did anyone see the SRT photos that Strongjeff posted of the new spunky front and rear end ? Well I thought that it looked sexy as hell ,I loved that bonnet design
