I am a firm believer that there are waaaayyy too many computers in the tools we use. From cars to appliances... Makes it so much harder to keep fixed and when it breaks down, many things end up in the scrap. Not very efficient if you ask me, which is what the computer was put in there for in the first place, to increase efficiency.

That does makes sence that the power had to be disconnected long enough for the capacitors to discharge . Found the spot where the main harness rubbed on a sharp edge enough that the wire corroded away . Also took care of another wire that the insulation was rubbed through too. Funny thing was it wasn't even in the area that I was looking at the first time , the damaged was down under the LF part of the frame !!! The wire's splice point was under the radiator support and then went backwards in the harness up to the relay block !!
Glad you got it worked out Al. I don't know if it is so much that the computer would have locked up more so being that it was stored in memory and it takes a set amount of time with no voltage till the capacitors empty to reset the computer.
