3 Answers


Did you test for and ground to the Clutch? If not there then check for it at the cycling switch on the accumulator tank, if it is ther then either the switch went bad or the charge is too low, if it is not there then check the activation switch on the heater controls. This of course assuming that the wiring is in good working order.
