I hope this is not it.....and since I'm catching up after a week's
trip, maybe this has been answered...but I kinda wonder if your main
computer (shudder) is sick. This sounds eerily like a problem we had
in our 84 5KT which resulted in replacing the main computer with one
from a wrecking yard (which worked nicely....)
Hope it's NOT!!!
