He came in one day and said that for some reason every time he took his big diesel wrecker up on the freeway, the 2-way radio would stop working. Yet, whenever he would arrive at my shop the radio worked fine. Yes, I went with him and sure enough as soon as he got up on the freeway and up to speed, no more 2-way radio. Anyone want to guess what caused this?

It turned out that it was part of a switching circuit for the 2 speed rear end. Ergo - When he was up on the freeway at cruising speeds, he was in high range, thus no radio. Took a bit to find that one.

Same deal with a glove box light, its supposed to be on when the glove box is open so no one will suspect a fault unless they can see its still on when the glove box is shut.
Both of these are pretty common faults in the real world.
Rig the fuel pump relay to run the fuel pump all the time? However i guess that will only work if the pump is really quiet or where they are doing it is noisy.
