...this tray is mounted in the back of a Ford Explorer. We strip the vehicles down, run our wires, install a bunch of shit (laptop stands, partition, gun lock etc) then reinstall the factory stuff and the electronics tray is the last step and ties it all together.

The original shifter assembly had soda spilled all over it causing the solenoid to stick. We replaced the shifter with a factory Ford part and this happened. We ordered another one, and the same thing. Upon further investigation we found 2 wires were mispinned in the connector of the new shifter assembles. Fucking bullshit.

Found both outer tie rods not even connected. Begs the question of how the vehicle got this far without the driver noticing anything.

It’s a big compressor, I’m sure it will sound instantly... the first 5 seconds in a large, hollow, concrete building should be fun

Right to the board. Needed new fuse block for a 2019 Sierra. The truck had less than 500 km.
