trying to download service man. What is a test #3?
Expert:  Mike replied 6 years ago.
Test #3 is on page 6-10 of the service manual. This will allow you to accurately diagnose where the problem is and what part to replace.This test checks the wiring to the motor and
rotor position sensor; and the motor and rotor position sensor themselves.

Please give the manual a few minutes to download since it is a large file.

There are many things I can do.... this is not one of them. Should I call an authorized

 

repairman?

Expert:  Mike replied 6 years ago.
Any local repair man should be able to take care of this. It would be cheaper then calling factory authorized since they are normally expensive and no better then a local repair guy.
