    These women, can't fool em, like trying to sneak daylight past a rooster! I Love it though.
    Got any kids zip? I have 1 son. Told him if he ever picked up a wrench i would flog him!!
    Never mind for real, i just read your other reply about the Skins.
    Back to the question, sorry ma'am,we get sidetracked from time to time. Easy for us men to do!
    Have the charging system checked, also the wire connector at the alt. Hope that helps.
