Furthermore if the BMSK recognizes a failing EWS it will generate a code and then the GT1 at the dealer comes into play to clear that fault code. However on the couple that have failed around here, only 50% of them generated a component failure code.
i appreciate the education... thanks

how long IS the backorder on the ring antennas these days?
