Did mine by adding  small telephone wires on the surface of ground and power
traces across the  thin PC section between existing solder points on each
trace.  solved.
Had it out 3 times, first time cleaned with circuit board  cleaner(lasted 6 
months), second time re flowed solder joints, still  no auto check display, 
third time yesterday while replacing Ac  aspirator, added some trace wires, still 
no improvement.  3 strikes, it  out.

Working seat heaters, you¹re kidding! Repaired mine twice, forget  it! The
old horse deserves a stable, garage it.
Park outdoors in Minnesota nfen (no further explanation  needed)

Easily repaired, take it apart and fix  it.
Not if I can get a working one cheep or free!

Sorry that you missed mine.
Me too!

ABS pipe cement?

Early causality, who  cares?

What¹s wrong with half way  full?
Live in Minnesota, always runs out when I need it most!, May try  and fix.

If you  remove the switch, you¹ll find a broken ground wire in the lever
bundle.  Replace with a high flex wire, such as solder de wick stuff.
BTDT, Think it might be the connectors in the sliding  switch.

Thanks, Pete
