Re: Further air con question
My apologies to Andyroo for commandeering his thread on this. I am in two minds about setting up my own. Having got this far it seems to me that for future readers it would be better to carry on here?
I've found the picture in the manual of the switch (on the dryer) you mention Andy, not the thing I thought at all (that's some kind of junction box for a battery cable!! Duh!) but not yet fiddled with it on the car.
Thinking back, I was disturbed by the voltage reading I found on one of the compressor relay control terminals - 5v (ish)??? That doesn't seem right to me, back feed from somewhere or duff component in control unit?? As I said, the compressor cut in immediately I shorted the high-current relay terminals.
Another thing concerns me - what happens if the outside temp. sender fails? I think it needs checking.
Doesn't say that in the manual
