Everyone! When you get a chance, check for chaffing on you wiring on the cover at the hinges.

They are sometimes to tight and slide back and forth, chaffing and then shorting out. Sends message to CID, roof ajar, time out, etc.

Do you add wire to allow more slack?:ssr

Careful about adding wire, you can then create a problem of the extra wire "Rubbing" on the roof paint when opening and closing.

Some SSR's have had the problem of the wire rubbing on the roof and had to re-route the wire.

Like Run Rod Run said, check out the other information about routing.
