Did you fix the problem?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
There was a secondary wire used for both the C and Y wires only the c existed at the control board which left my Y from the PEK without a home once I recognized the 2nd wire was used as a direct splice all went into place. so short explanation long, no your answer would not have helped since there is not any Y connection or y1 on the control board but thanks anyway, I was at loss and $40 bucks seemed like a cheaper solution.

Let me know if you still need any assistance with this. Y goes directly from thermostat to outdoor unit, does not connect at air handler.
