MTFS's seem to fail every two or three years regardless.
>From personal experience, the most prevalent failure is
the ON-OFF circuit that controls boost and AC.
I did once see the temp gauge go dead.
The "dumbo design" causes connectors to
go green with corrosion, causing additional
intermittent problems, ADDING to the failure
effects with an intermittent type issue.
