Re: [DML] 2653 Stalled out on the highway this morning............


Just to add to what Hank stated.  I also had the same type of thing  

I replaced the connectors on the ballast resistors and had the  
problem happen again.  It turns out that in addition to the ballast  
resistor connectors, I also had to replace the small connectors for  
the wires on the coil located in the bulkhead.  One of them was  
partially melted and was causing a poor connection.

Other connectors to check are the main wiring harness connectors in  
the bulkhead.  Make sure they are clean and fully seated.  I had  
intermittent operation of the A/C compressor and found that the main  
wiring harness connectors had some corrosion.  Cleaning these  
connectors solved the problem.

I hope that helps.
