So apparently this little ground fault button on our power outlet in our downstairs kitchen also shuts off power to the electrical outlets in our garage. Our garage has a signal booster for the cable.

I already looked it up out of curiosity, but I'm not going to tell you because I don't support your laziness.

Yeah those GCFI outlets can be annoying

Interesting that your kitchen is on the same circuit as the garage

The guy who wired our house was downright retarded and had no clue what he was doing. The annoying thing is it's a huge pain to undo all of the crap wiring he's done so far.

Pretty sure the kits are the same for M52s and M54s until around MY 2003, but get his part number and make sure it matches the correct one for your VIN/build date on realoem.

Interesting. It's a nice way to cheap out on getting multiple GFCI outlets, but I wonder why someone thought that was a good idea for the garage.
In any case, you should be able to rewire the kitchen outlet so the garage outlets aren't drawing load from it.

It'd be funny if they put more mileage on those parts than you do.

I didn't think GFCI outlets were supposed to shut off parallel outlets, only themselves...
