rpm counter reacted strangely
« on: June 28, 2017, 09:59:45 am »
So this morning, getting ready for the commute, I tried to start the GSA,
turned ignition key-waited for diagnostics to complete,
pressed kill switch to on,
rpm needle spins to max, did this twice-pressed starter switch and NOTHING! Engine did not even turn over. Checked battery-loose cables, nothing visually wrong. All lights bright, horn ok. I'm stumped, what could this be?
Some say I lack ambition,
I say I value my freedom.
