im finally tackling my elc. i need your help!
hey guys. i need some help getting to the bottom of my elc problem. the problem being, it simply doesn't work.
heres the story. in about march of '10 i was driving thru a friends yard because i was helping him work on his mower. we went and bought a new engine for it, and he said just drive back to the shed. so he told me where to go and i went. well the next thing i know my car is scraping on seemingly nothing. i look under the car, no fuel lines cut all seems ok apart from the missing undercoat, we let bygones be bygones and we went on with the mower. (it ended up being a metal property marker)
when i got back in the car to leave, before i even started the car i heard click click click click, faster than a turn signal with a broken bulb under the back seat. i start the car, it stops. turn off the car it starts. and no compressor ever. it did this for about 3 months and then just stopped of its own accord. but still no compressor.
here is a video i took of it while it was still doing it.
so while i was having my exhaust done last month, i got under the lift wiith a spray can and was painting up that bare metal where the marker scraped off the undercoat. i get back under the wheel, and i notice about 3 severed wires. mechanic was cool, gave me some solderless but connectors and a crimping tool to use and i put em back together and was on my way. still no compressor. so while i was at the junkyard getting window regulators, i got the relay that was clicking before out of the junkyard car thinking mine had just burned itself out. still no fix.
i checked the 30a fuse, and its good and i also checked the holes where the relay plug in, and 2 on one side are live and the other 2 are dead. didnt think to run wires up the relay with it plugged in but i doubt both are bad.
my question to you guys is, where do i go from here? im at a loss. thanks alot!
