Default NEED HELP ASAP. major electric problem.

ok so its raining today and my dad gets in the truck and the wipers stop working. try to fix them thinking like before the connector was wet. nope it was dry. ok so he is now late for work. well driving the air bag light turns on. and than 5 mins later my new ohc turns off as well. the ohc is tied into the radio for power but the radio is still working. and than the blickers and hazzards stop woking. than the speedomiter stops as well. than all of a sudden the ohc works and air bag light turns off than 1 min later stop working. i am so confussed. how are all these tied into each other. i didnt think they were. please any help i can use i thank u for it.

Check your fuses and relays- We have a plymouth van that got so bad electrically the radio didnt work, the lights blinked you name it, it was acting up. We recently replaced one of the relays and everything magically went back to normal

------------------

Should have also included that if one relay goes bad, it affects the other ones on down the line thus the reason why many things can act up at the same time..

Chances are you messed with something in the GEM while putting your new ohc in. I recommend you look over your wiring.

Default Re: NEED HELP ASAP. major electric problem.

I put the OHC in, and have done 3 others. Nothing was done that would have messed with anything or with the GEM. The power to the OHC was tapped into the 12v for the cd player. Speed sensor wire was not hooked up either so no hands were in or around anything up in the dash.

The problem started when the rain started. something got wet and is causing these problems. What I can not say, but I can say that removing sub wiring and an install on an OHC has not caused these problems
