Did you try resetting it to see if it persists?

I know this might sound dumb....

Could the light be on because I need to change my oil? I have 4,500 miles on it and haven't serviced it yet?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Another yellow wire mod help before I cut the wire on my 2010 reg cab 4x4, I want to make sure I'm doing it correctly. Here's a pic I just took. Do I cut the yellow wire that is second from the top here (where I'm pointing)?


Click for full-size image (1024 x 768)


I'm going wheeling tomorrow and wont have a bunch of time to fix things if this messes everything up. Here are the steps I'm going to do: 1. Disconnect the battery 2. Unplug that clip with all the wires going into it 3. Cut the yellow wire second down from the top 4. Connect clip back in 5. Connect battery

Is this correct? What if I dont unplug the white clip with all the wires going into it before I cut the yellow wire?

Thanks guys!

Hey man, I can't help you with the yellow wire mod because I haven't done it.

But - I can offer a word of perspective: A time when you "won't have a bunch of time to fix things if this messes everything up." is a *bad* time to be making a modification.

Just sign me: a guy who has previously exercised bad timing.

Good call. I'll just wait until a get back from Cleghorn to do it. I wanted to do it before I go so I can try it out, but it may be too risky. Thanks.
