Unfortunately, I can't look at the video you linked here (since I'm at work) but I wanted to point out that there is a big difference between 110 volts AC and 24 volts DC. If I had to guess, the point of the 110 volts is to alternate the current at 60hz and cause it to open and shut rapidly cleaning out the crap. Putting 24 volts DC through it will just trigger the solenoid in one direction like 12 volts would.You know about the trick of putting 110 volts through a VRIS to clean the contacts? Use at your own risk. I've never done it myself, and would try 24 volts first (2 car batteries in series).
Had the same problemSadly, my MX6 is just sitting, waiting for a part. Specifically, a new exhaust/resonator (it's rusting out, at the flange where it joins the muffler). None available (that I could find). WrenchMonkey say they can get one from Borla sometime in July, so I ordered it. If that fails, I'm going to have to ask my neighbour if he will fabricate one for me (he makes stainless steel exhaust systems as a hobby).
Went out for the test drive... dead battery. Jumped and drove ~12 miles. It's working well. Went to drive it to work this morning... battery was too low to turn over the engine.Four months after purchase... it's finally titled in my name and registered. Time for a test drive. (=
Wrench Monkey Canada eventually came through with a Bosal resonator. Good quality part, at a good price.Had the same problem. Part no longer available, so I had a shop cut out the old at that rotted joint and put in a straight pipe down to the muffer and twin tip. Still legal now since AirCare (emissions tests) have ended.
All is good.
Still have problems with the code 51 air bag sensor thing. Bulb burnt out from flashing so much and now the blue box/module beeps regularly....ugh
Aftermarket Stereo? That's always the first suspect with electrical issues!Clearly I have some parasitic draw I need to track down. I'm tempted to blame the stereo, but I guess I'll start at basic principles and fix any electrical issues I can find. I noticed the cluster was flickering when I drove, so clearly there's a bad ground there, and the receptacle for one of the courtesy lights is not working, so I'll fix those first.
Time to break out the multi-meter!
Cool.. Good for that..!!Wrench Monkey Canada eventually came through with a Bosal resonator. Good quality part, at a good price.
I was lucky to find an air bag blue box/module at Kenny U-Pull a couple of years back, which fixed my air bag light.
Yup, that's my suspicion as well. Also I suspect a problem with the trunk courtesy light (the trunk is not the one that came with the car. It's got a spoiler (and used to be red) on a black base car.. Pulling the ROOM fuse (which I assume the radio is wired into) only reduces the draw from 130 mA to ~70 mA, so there's gotta be something else in there too.Aftermarket Stereo? That's always the first suspect with electrical issues!
Great to hear your MX6 is on the road!
