I knew that. Thanks for slapping me in the head. Brain fart.

The wire colors on the harmonica matched up ok to each other so that would seem not to be the issue.

Now it seems that I may not have had a part in my column when I disassembled it. I started another thread on that subject...

I received the wrong part but assembled the column anyway. After all it had been working the way it was for the four years that I have owned it.

So the rack issue is solved and the car starts and runs. I now have no turn signals. So I started a thread about that.



It turned out to be the harmonica connection on the column. The connectors were not seated all the way.

Well, that shouldn't be that serious of a fix.
Good luck with it.
