You probably should perform a fuel pressure test to see if the fuel pressure is bleeding off of the fuel rails when the engine is shut off. If it is, you could have a bad fuel pressure regulator or a bad check valve in the fuel pump module (which will require replacement of the module).One way to test for this condition without any tools is like this:cycle the key ON, wait about two seconds, then OFF, wait about 2 more seconds, and back ON again. Repeat his 3 or 4 times before turning the key to the CRANK position. If the engine starts immediately every time you do this, then the hard starting is definately caused by the fuel pressure bleeding off.

You have so many electrical issues, you really need a good auto-electrician. Not sure why you replaced an alternator to fix an Odometer. Alternators can be easily checked with a multimeter. There are lots of videos on it. Your most likely cause is one or more fuses blown. When that happens, voltage can be directed to places it shouldn't go. The first thing I would do is pull every fuse in the vehicle and test for continuity with a meter. It is is parasitic draw, you need an ammeter and you pull easy fuse, noticing if the draw stops or not. That narrows it down to a particular circuit. There is an ECM, a BCM and many control modules on that vehicle. A scan tool computer diagnosis may help you a lot. They are 3 grand, so you need to find a place that has one. ..

Got it, with the help and eyes of my wife. The rear latch releases as the seat back is lowered. This release is ALMOST seat back down (about 3 inches above the seat bottom). As the seat back lowers, apply constant lift on the rear latch, and it will release as the seat back lowers. Hard-won knowledge - I think I invented some bad words in the process.

There isn't an inline filter like you see in most vehicles. Your fuel filter is part of the fuel pump assembly and is located in the fuel tank. If you are dealing with a fuel pressure problem there is good news. The fuel tank does not have to be removed to get at the fuel pump assembly on your vehicle. If you remove the lower part of the back seat, there is an access plate. Once that plate is removed you have pretty easy access to be able to remove the fuel pump assembly. Below are some pictures that should help. Hope it does....4_22_2012_10_46_50_am.jpg4_22_2012_10_47_11_am.jpg4_22_2012_10_47_33_am.jpg

There's no inertia switch in this vehicle. The 80 amp fuse gets battery on one side and the alternator B terminal on the other. I hope this helps. Take Care.
