    I had an issue with mine a few years ago too. Turned out to be one of the wires had rubbed through and was making a connection that turned the light on. Might be worth looking into it.

    Heating heated mirrors

    So I got me some good ole' tow mirrors for the truck and they do have the heated option. I think that the wires are there in the harness that goes to the mirror, but I was wondering what it would take for me to make them work. I have an empty switch in my homemade panel that I could use. Any ideas?

    Brake problems

    Mine get 'soft' too. Seems to be the way they are. I have had the ABS module electronically bled off and that seems to work for awhile. Annoying more than anything. Maybe I will have to check into the abs sensors.

    Rings wore out?

    Wish I had the money to do something about it. I am guessing that would involve pulling the motor apart??

    Rings wore out?

    Almost a year later! Better late than never! Had compression test done and the glow plugs replaced. All cylinders were between 420 and 440 except for one at 375. Also there was only one functioning glow plug! He had 2 of them bust off, but still managed to get them out. Now it will start good...

    Yellow antifreeze

    we use some 'yellowish' coolant in our shop for our trucks. Supposedly it can be mixed with other coolants and not be a problem. I just take the bosses word for it and don't ask questions!:thumb:
