zapped...

Everything was going so well today until I headed out to the store to buy some milk for a batch of croissants.  Just before I got to the highway, my truck died and a puff of smoke came out from under the hood.  (Puffs of smoke are never good because it means some of the magic has been released.) Luckily I found a friend at the mailboxes who was willing to drive me home to get some tools.  The problem was just as I suspected - some of the wiring for my winch decided to weld itself to the chassis, shorting out my battery and completely frying the ground wire.  Removed the offending wiring and patched in a new ground wire and I was good to go.  Just glad it was what I thought it was because I am pretty clueless otherwise when it come to internal combustion engines... 87,92,65,0,B

Glad it was pretty simple fix

Funny thing is...when I installed this years ago - I thought to myself I should wrap all of this with electrical tape. I should have listened...

When you put it back together put a fuse inline they make some biguns that will work for that purpose or use a relay I am always putting relays and such on add on items for fear of fire and it would be very costly the have some one's car come back all crispy.

Cheaper than the brake job I'm into ... $257 and counting. It's always something, but I'm not complaining. As I heard a guy a say once ... "Them that has, must lose."
