No increase in voltage (so the voltage reg is OK, right)?
Could not get the car to act up again. Something else I remember from the other day was that the speedo is now off calibration from before, could that be related?
Could I have a problem with the CD box (hope not, the factory ones are REALLY high). If it is bad, can I use a Msd 6al 6462 to perform the same duties?
Still wondering what to do to fix the car (if it acts up I will start checking voltage with it acting up). I did check the battery cables (should probably take them off and clean them first) and I looked at the 4th fuse from the right. It looks good, but....
I don't think this could affect your speedo. I would check all the grounds you can find, especially the strap at the starter and the one up around the back of the alternator that connects to the crankcase. I don't see how the CD box could make your tach go crazy either.
