    ..........an ignition module can almost ruin your day. Was on my way to Oysterville (out by Long Beach) Friday night, following my father in law in his Cummins. Burb dies at Padden Expressway...............I mean dead. No start, has fuel, figured it's the module. He towed me with strap to my brother in law's house, half hour later we have it running. $40 part.............remind me to keep a spare in the glove box. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Re: It\'s amazing how a simple thing like..............

    I had a fuse-link blow in my old Blazer right as I got on the I-5 bridge going to Portland. No power to anything, including hazard lights. Of course I was alone, on my way to work, so no spotter. I spent 20 minutes fixing it just knowing that somebody was going to roll along not paying attention (Like me), and cream the back of the truck with me under the hood. All I could think about was what injuries I would sustain in a rear end collision between a parked Blazer and a Semi truck doing 60 mph. It worked out fine, and I was on my way, but it did scare the crap out of me.
