It's really important to fix this problem because every time you hear the
pop in the speaker, you're also giving the ECU the equivalent of a brain
electroshock treatment. After a while, you start getting a violent jerk
in the engine. The info is on Scott Mockry's site at:
The harness installs easily into the wiring to the A/C magnetic clutch by
separating a connection, plugging in the extra wire and grounding the
diode. The relay replaces the A/C clutch relay in the panel below the
steering wheel. I got mine last fall from Carlsen for a little over $100,
I think. The harness and replacement relay are dealer-only according to
the nondealer vendors I contacted last fall.
