RE: No start in cold weather due to faulty relay
The reason that you have to wait for the relays to come to the dealership is beacuse this is an ongoing problem and the engineers simply cant figure out why. So they are constantly making minute little changes to the design of the relay and they are sending them out all over the place. This is why they dont want to send a bunch to one dealership, its because we are now a test market. They are always changing the design of the relays that they send out. This comes to me directly from the dealership service manager who is a friend of mine.
Hopefully they will find the real source because it does not seem to me, that its the relay that is the problem. It has to be something else.
