I own a 1996 Concourse with 150,000 with very few problems in it's life. I take good care of everything and watch it like a hawk. Recently after steam cleaning the engine (I have pressure washed it several times and you can eat off the engine), the air ride went away. I have checked everything I can think of - - - what did I miss ? I applied 12 V power to the compressor motor and it works and checked all elect lines for connection and corrosion, but found none. On one of the connections the voltage was so low, the light barely came on.
battery voltage on dash is between 14.2 and 14.4, I hooked up a charger directly to the second terminal on the lead going to the compressor and the compressor started and lifted the car almost 4 inches.
I text msg my son who was a service manager for a big Chev dealer that the present administration demanded be closed and he was out of a job. He may still have one, other than that possibility, we will have to wait until tomorrow. - - "Cap"
My son said he had to turn in the scanner when they closed down the dealership. He suggested Auto Zone !
My hope is if Auto Zone has one, that they will let me use it, but I think they are closed until Tuesday, as today is Labor Day.
With you not being able to diagnose the problem and provide a cure, can this be continued tomorrow ? Will my credit card be charged even though I am without a cure ?
Please respond - - - "Cap"
I noticed first thing this morning, that my credit card has been charged for the full amount. Please explain ?
I didn't need to borrow a diagnostic scan tool after all. After sleeping on the problem I could not figure out why no fuses were blow, so right after I sent you my first msg early this morning, I went out to double check everything and I found a break in a wire and I repaired it.
I turned the ignition on and could hear the pump working.
The system works perfect once again.
How do I go about asking for a refund ? - - - thanks, "Cap"
