Answer, bad earth!
An electrical problem that led to dozens of Boeing 737 MAX jets being suspended from service has widened after engineers found similar grounding flaws elsewhere in the cockpit, industry sources said on Friday.
Airlines pulled dozens of MAX jets from service a week ago after Boeing Co warned of a production-related electrical grounding problem in a backup power control unit situated in the cockpit on some recently built airplanes.
Since then, suspected grounding problems have been found in two other places on the flight deck, the sources said.
These include the storage rack where the affected control unit is kept and the instrument panel facing the pilots.
Boeing had no immediate comment on the wider problem, which was first reported by Aviation Week.
The glitch - which affects about a fifth of MAX jets in the market - is the latest issue to beset Boeing's most-sold model but is not related to design problems that contributed to a 20-month worldwide safety ban in the wake of two fatal crashes.
The problem has been traced back to a change in material coating once production of the 737 MAX resumed last year.
Ha! we could tell them a thing or two about bad earths!!
Steve Cox's range of Lancia Delta diagnostic tools is loosely based on a program called Startrek, which was designed to connect to the Fiat Coupe 16v, (which uses the Integrale Evo2 P8 ECU and ignition system) and the software looked rather like a control panel from Star Trek (hence the name).
Steve's version developed into the software that's available today, it has gone through numerous re-writes and is being enhanced and improved all the time.
