17 CRV. Customer complaint was bright light and loud noise now car won’t run. Insurance making me replace one control unit at a time. Nothing communicates, wierd shit stuck on... Not a single fuse popped. All control units scrambled.

Got a belt put on and fired it up. Kind of a neglected vehicle, but seems it be idling pretty smooth... Must have stripped on a startup instead of while driving. I didn’t expect it to work.

...just a Chevy option fake chrome wheel. Aluminum core with foam on top of that and plastic chrome on top of that. All of the plastic chrome is gone and the foam is starting to go.

It was only holding it at around 1300 rpm and would run it up to around 2k if you stepped on the brake. The customer’s actual complaint was that it would run high when starting.
