[DMCForum] Re: Electrical & A/C



Walt,

I don't think the resistor is the problem because once the ckt is
energized the resistor is hot all the time. The gauge changes while
driving and I've had it read wrong immediately upon start up when the
resistor would be cold. It did once this morning.

I'm pretty sure it's a ground. We'll find it.

You gave me a rough estimate for $100.00 for A/C repair. I do
understand things go wrong and that's probably not going to be the
final bill. Somewhere in the neighborhood is ok. I am planning on
letting you work my A/C.

As cold as it is now, I'll probably roast my a$$ off this summer so
it'll be nice to have.
