"Idiot" would indicate you aren't capable of learning.
"Ignorant" would be more appropriate, that simply means you don't have an understanding of the subject.
I would say that "Learning
" is more appropriate since you are asking here for guidance!
Mike Romain and John Strenk are the guys to teach you about what's going on!
No question they are not only the most knowledgeable about the electrical systems,
But both take a 'Horse Sense' approach to the 'Issues'...
You won't see them telling you to buy a $500 aftermarket harness for something that will take you 20 minutes and $5 to repair/replace/upgrade!
John has some of the best diagrams/pictures I've ever seen, and when he starts putting the electrical diagram next to the picture of the actual wiring, it makes things SO MUCH BETTER to understand!
And you learn how to read electrical diagrams and schematics in the process!
Who else do you know that has dissected an entire Jeep wiring harness, taken pictures of every wire, connector, splice, fuse and labeled all the wires in the pictures for the guys trying to figure out what's going on!?!
Just the time alone to do all that makes me crazy!
Mike is the most down to earth guy when it comes to fixes!
He REALLY has a way of putting it to the 'Brass Tacks' test when people don't know what they are doing, or are confused about what they should do!
You can tell he has spent most of his life with greasy fingers, busted knuckles and probably has purple dings in his fingernails!
There is NO TEACHER LIKE EXPERIENCE!
And his experience comes through in his advice!
I could do what they do, but I spend my life being side tracked by esoteric details... Must be 'Senior' moments! Farts-Heimers or something... (When my brain sucks a fart...
