Re: [APD] Blown Ballast -- or - blown opportunities for obvious advice

You want to fix Kim's car? ;-)

I believe AHS stopped using those quick-connectors some
time ago and switched to using wire nuts.

A bit embarrassing that none of us (including me)  said,
"First thing, check all of the wiring and connections."
After all, that advice comes right after the repair
suggestion, "Check that it's plugged in and the wall socket
is live" and "check for any moths on the circuit boards",
which btw, was the first computer bug -- although a moth
isn't a true bug, taxanomically speaking. ;-)
