That'* the PMV assembly, Pressure Modulator Valve for the ABS brakes and Traction control. Don't drive the car until you bleed the brakes. That'* bad news. This is MAJORLY SERIOUS. BLEED THE BRAKES BY THE BOOK.

This is what you're after (top view looking down):

Should be in the right rear fenderwell on a 97.

This is VERY dangerous. I gaurantee you have air pockets in your brake lines. It'* only a matter of time before you hit the brakes and nothing happens. The pedal will go all the way to the floor. Don't drive the car until you bleed the brakes VERY well. You need to do this until you have CLEAR NEW fluid coming out all 4 corners. Fill the master cylinder often during the process.

We really should hook you up with some local members and get this whole thing over with. We have some GREAT folks here.

What City/State/Area are you in?

On the phone with them. Working out the problems. Checking for 12V at the pump with the inflator on.

BILLBOOST: Please look up the circuiit in the 97 FSM and tell us what position the ELC Relay is in (Position E on the 95) above the passenger footwell.

Please also tell us the color of the wires for 12V (dk green on 95) and ground (blk on 95).

Thank you!

If you get 12V at the pump harness with the inflator on, the relay is good. Replace the pump if the ground is also good.

If you DON'T get 12V, the fuse is good because you hear the solonoid for the inflator, so change the compressor.
