Hi Sid.
Here is a link to a thread I started the day after my Monitch installation.
I am having mine removed, since I moved to Florida I am no longer required to have it.
Anyway, best of luck in court. I can’t be there as a witness, but would certainly support you if I was still in NC.
Please let us know how things turn out. These jurks should not be cutting wires in peoples cars. They could use adapters that simply plug in with NO cutting of wires required. Very poor practice, what they are doing. And, they don’t even tell us up front they will be cutting wires.
I think we all should sue them for wiring replacement that is up to factory specs (no splices).
We have to pay for any damage we do to their machine, they should have to pay for the damage they are doing to our cars.
