BMC non starting

As it turns out that the last post was a clue I found out from a friend before rechecking these notes. When the key is turned on, the "Neutral" does not light up on the Transmission pad. If I have...

They're probably tons of threads on the Forum about how to check this out, but when I try searching I get all sorts of unrelated stuff.

Heating up

My BMC is starting to heat up quickly when I hit some big hills. Not mountains, just steep grades, not even long ones. Of course, it has been over 90 degrees outside so that doesn't help much. ...
