Update...I was looking at some of the other posts and there was one that dealt with this same problem. He talked about the green ecu test mode connectors under the dash and how they were connected. They are not supposed to be left connected (apparently).
I looked under my dash to check my ecu test connectors and found they were not connected. But I did find something a little frightening. One of the previous owners must have installed some kind of aftermarket electronics and used all manner of wiring splices to install it. I have wires spliced into other wires and wires just cut and hanging bare. I don't have time to work on this anymore tonight...this will be a weekend project. Wish me luck...
