    2005.5 Limp mode, sluggish low end, maf code

    I've been enjoying the cooler temps driving the higher altitudes of the North Georgia mountains all day. That's a good tip, haven't checked that.

My mechanic did a little more digging and thinks it might be worth replacing what he calls the boost controller or wastegate. Would that be the same as the vnt actuator? If so, it sounds like that might not be available or...

    What is this connector?

    I got Emissions Workshop! and codes were pointing to egr and N18. Looking under the hood, I noticed this was disconnected. Hell yes! Could it actually be that easy? So far, the code cleared and hasn't returned. What is this connector? . I hope this picture works.

    Switched outlets magically became unswitched

    Thanks for your reply, unfortunately, that sounds like complicated electrical diagnosis stuff that I fear my brain is unequipped to handle. Could a stuck relay cause the outlets to become unswitched? I did replace a tail light assembly following a fender bender last week. Could I have caused...
