    Be glad that the problem was right there in front of you! Imagine if it would have happened somewhere out of plain view. That would have sucked. I'll bet you were happy to find that it was an easy fix. :D

    after further investigation, I believe I can blame this one on the weather, well at least partly, the cheap wal mart zip ties that I bought pretty much snap in half when it is this cold. I only have three zip ties on the whole dang thing and when I tried to move the wire the other ones just broke, there was no flexibility in them at all. So two things learned. Don't use zip ties to hold electrical stuff away from the header, and wal mart zip ties suck
