Moderators can't see everything bad going on here, it's up to us to be vigilant and report all suspected post. I hit that report button as often as I see due fit. Maybe sometimes I'm paranoid but so far 7 for 7.

A truck is an investment when you need it to make money, buying a truck to do burnouts is not a keen investment. Consider a pair of Michelins at $640 plus tax plus installation and balancing (very little if it's a Michelin) I would rather you smoke a joint. Money better spent. I paid over $1500 for 4 Michelins, I'll be damned if I'm going to waste any of that money on a burnout.

Doesn't the CX-5 have proximity sensors for collision avoidance?
I guess I'm lucky that mine only runs over the garbage bags, then drags and spreads it all over the city. I keep my vehicles clear from where she's going to be, in fact I keep them in a separate driveway. Good habit I took when I had the Corvettes.

In the shop today I finally got that cluster to shut down after ignition power removed, spent at least 4 hours under microscope and finally found a crack in the solder. Re-flowed and it hasn't failed in 100 attempts. Then repaired the dead PRND321 display, I replaced the stepper motors and bulbs with cool white. This is a GFX special edition and looks particularly nice in cool white with the silver backing.
Don't think I made minimum wage on this one, but the guy will be happy to see it work again. That's all that counts for me. My eyes burn and I will probably have plenty of eye crispies in the morning but I'll survive.

If it's the new style body, the RCDLR was a little kwirky and sometimes would lose programming. I found 2 solutions, one was to remove the fuse for the RCDLR and wait 10 seconds, plug it back in and try your remotes. If this doesn't work try reprogramming them, the 07 has on board programming.
