    Wife's G30 Van was low on water so it got hotter then she liked. Ok i'll fix it I said.
    Anyway it was time to refill antifreeze.

    While doing that i was looking at the automatic daylight relay. oooops did a short and blow the 10 amp fuse.
    Looked inside for a spare fuse.. Next to the fusebox there was 2 unmarked fuses.. yeah goodie I thougt.
    Lights OK.

    later wife was going shopping. and came back and said:

    I dont think the transe liked all the heat. It will not shift..

    WHAT the f¤%k ? I went out to have a look..
    Its a 480LE case.. no she was right. It didnt shift.
    BIG BUCKS fell into my head..
    So i started inspecting.. Could find any blow fuses.
    Took both batteries off to resett computer.. NO FIX
    Replaced computer chip with a spare one NO fix

    oh sh#t.. transe dead i guess.
    So I just put in a new 10 AMP spare for here that i borrowed earlier..
