I’ve got all the Mitchell’s wiring info, I’m no professional by any means but I’m not a newbie I’ve done all the work on my Porsche’s the past decade but this one has me absolutely freaking stumped I feel like I’m going mad tearing the car apart lol
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
A lot of times what happens is the relay will go bad and cause the compressor to over run hence over heating and causing the problem so it smart to change the relay or u may have another dead overpriced compressor

If you are satisfied with your answer, please take a moment to rate my service before you go. Experts are not compensated without a positive rating. Providing a rating does not close the question, you can reply or ask additional questions without incurring further charges. Rating my answer positive charges your account the full question value and credits me. Submitting for a refund removes the credit from my account and makes me donate my time and experience for free, which is not my intention. Please only rate positive if you are satisfied and intend on paying for the services you agreed to. Thanks!
