Default Re: How-To: OHC Install

Well the mode button thing didn't help. So I checked the ground and it was a little loose so i changed that, but i forgot to unhook the battery and when I got it plugged back in it wont do a thing.... So i figured i blew a fuse somewhere but i check the spots on the side of the dash and under the hook near the battery and none were blown that i could see.....Could I be over looking anything??? I also checked to make sure all the wires i did put in at first are still connected good.

Default Re: How-To: OHC Install

I checked the power (yellow and grey) wire and its getting power all the way to the console itself. And all the fuses are good. And the screen wont show anything at all. So my question now is there a way to fix this? Or do I have to get a whole new console???

Follow the link in post 315. I did this and all worked great when I was done. It was easy to drop a glob of solder on it. It did not look pretty but it worked. I did have to use magnifying glasses while doing it. I am pretty sure that is your problem as others have described your same problem and fixed it with the link in post 315.

Good luck.

Here's some pics that might help

Old, messed up board, notice the 510 resistor missing



"new" one from junkyard. Same problem, but all resistors were there.




Put more solder on the joints



(I suck at soldering, but it was my 1st time.

And, it works now.

Yep. I think that a explorer OHC has less resistors on it, just so you know.

Yeah, I mentioned that it had fewer resistors.

Those joints are awful looking on yours. Lay some fresh solder on top, and it should work again

I redone the soldering and tried it and it didn't work.... I checked and its getting power to the board itself so i know its not a fuse..... Any other ideas? Could I have burnt something up on the board that I could replace?
