Start by checking battery voltage, should be 12.4 minimum, if battery is ok, check battery cables for corrosion and make sure they're tight including the one on the starter solenoid and the ground

Thanks. Checked that. Voltage is 12.6. Here is the crazy thing. I cleaned cables, unplugged, plugged back in. Nothing. Nope. Then one cold morning i decided to give it a try. It started! Then once I arrived to my destination. It would not start. So, now it only will start after an entire night sitting in the cold? Any ideas? Very Strange.


Check the computer connector plugs for loose or dirty connection, it's located in engine compartment on passenger side fender wall
