At our very first fuel stop on our way to Branson last year, I fueled the car, got in, hit the key...........and POOF smoke from under the dash was the only response I got from the car. Well we looked at each other and said "this ain't good".
I pushed the car off to the side. Started to look around under the dash, didn't see anything. So I tried starting it again, and wamo it started right up.
We looked at each other, shrugged our shoulders and hit the road again. The car started fine every time after that.
Untill we were second in line with all the other BR's to go to dinner in Branson. I hit the key and nothing, not even any smoke this time.
Rolled the car down off the hill. Started looking around AGAIN, but this time I found the culprit!
I had jumped out the "push in the clutch to start the car switch". The jumper had fallen and was laying on the pedal assembly metal, shorting out from time to time. I taped it up, and all was well the rest of the trip.
THE BANDIT RUN = never a dull moment.
