  3. High fuel pressure and warning light

    Looks like the mechanical systems are a bit slow to react... By pulling the throttle quickly, the fuel is being delivered at too high of a rate...causing an actual high pressure for a moment... Try pulling the throttle out at a much slower rate to see if the fuel controller can keep up with you better... Put this in the category of a transition event. Not like a continuous event... I get the feeling, that once the alarm is tripped, it takes getting acknowledged to go away. It doesn't go away on its own, when the pressure spike is gone? PP thoughts only, not a mechanic or instrument guru... Best regards, -a-
  4. Great follow-up, Robert! Best regards, -a-
  5. Vibration on instrument panel board

    Expect that there are... they are usually rubber bits on the bolts holding the panel in place... The easy way to look is find the bolts at the front and look behind the panel. My experience comes from My M20C... the K is most likely a bit more modern... Best regards, -a-

  14. Welcome aboard, Paul. Based on the 2015 post date from @Aerodon it is hard to tell. But, by putting his name in lights, like I did, it will alert him to look this way... Best regards, -a-
  15. Speaking of vacuum steps-

    Firebird And corvette headlight motors use a torque sensor on the motor.... amp sensor, that gets monitored. At the end of the travel, the amps spike momentarily turning the system off. Based on a 12v motor with a worm drive tip, and a round plastic gear, (probably ABS. Based on its age / failure issues...) When the plastic gear teeth fall off, the timer shuts the motor down after a few seconds. An idea that may work for this system as well...? Best regards, -a-
