i believe the model is a Fedders HD009H15D
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.
Hello,
If the wiring is ok...then we likely have a bad circuit board. Generally this is the outdoor circuit board.
Do you have a meter ?

i do have a meter, me = retired master auto tech
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.
Great.
First lets do an obvious check on the outdoor circuit board. Since you are already well versed in electronics I will not need to cover safety/power issues.
We want to look at back of the board for any hot spots or discoloration.
As mentioned, the number one cause for this code is a defective board so we will start visual.
If the board appears to be in good condition...restore power and verify proper input voltage.
Then we can move forward

i found a dead gecko in the pc board container after removing the cover,
is the board "glued" down to the plastic box its in ?
took out six screws that looked apparent to remove board from holder but it acts like its got an adhesion to the container?
dont want to break it.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok got it off no noticeable burn marks , etc. putting it back down unless we need to check back side for voltage or ohm tests
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

than it attempts to turn back on and than a relay clicks turning it off,
