Are there plain storage tanks available that you could plumb in where the old water heater was, and then use a tankless for heating? jim

You need lower viscosity blinker fluid. Sorry, couldn't resist. I always check for bad grounds when there are variable electrical behaviors. Does it happen when the car is warmed up? jim
