 is your soul worth to ya!?   ;-)   *GULP*  Dealer's quote was
 $800!!!  DAMN, is this thing gold plated?  heheh   We declined the
 repair obviously.  ;-)
 Sooooo... has anyone else dealt with this?  Any ideas or input
 would be appreciated. >>


No experience, but...how about cleaning the contacts to the module.  It
wouldn't surprise me nor probably anyone else on this list if the source was
a dirty contact.  Certainly worth a try.  I would check to see if this
requires any safety precautions first, though.
