    OD problems

    My OD only works the first time I use it. When it does engage it works and sounds great. With the car stoped and the ignition turned on, I hear the new OD relay click when I first turn on the dash switch. (No solenoid sound either). Not any time after that unless I turn the ignition off and on again. Thatís got to be a symptom of something???

    I would prefer not taking the tunnel off simply to check if there is any voltage getting to the solenoid. I'm hoping this additional information might help someone diagnose the problem for me. Hopefully it won't include removing the tunnel. Wish-full thinking I know.


    I'm going to check the throttle switch next. What do you think?


    Sincerely,
    John (Reddog)

    Re: OD problems

    John, sorry to hear of the problems - this however is not the place to post the question. Not sure what car you actually have - (might be worth posting in your signature line)

    But if you post it in the appropriate forum I suspect you will get lots of help!

    John, you posted in the forum that is for asking questions about how to navigate in the forums. If you tell me what sort of car you have I'll "move" your post to the correct forum.
