When investigating a customer complaint of an intermittent no crank condition,
check the bulkhead terminal (ST3/ST5) for looseness (Illustration 1).
1. Disconnect the battery negative cable.
2. Pull up the rubber cap and torque the nut to 62 - 88.5 lbs. in. (7 - 10 Nm.) to
ensure a tight connection.
3. Reconnect the battery and reset the clock.
