one Stage one relay later...it runs and RUNS!
With hot weather rapidly approaching, I ordered the relay Saturday when I bought new cabin filter and oiled the blower. I had not been in a CarQuest in a long time but they were the only local shop besides MB that had filters and I pulled the relay and carried it there for a match. Price was same as I could get anywhere online although it was a URO, not OEM Hella.
Strange occurrence when I plugged in the new one, key and car were off but immediately heard a buzzing somewhere down low that did not go away. Car was warm as I had just used it to go PU the part. When I did start it, the aux fan took a minute to start, guess that pressure sensor was loading up but the strange thing was that when I turned the key to off and pulled it; the engine kept running? Couldn't believe it at first, thought the fan was ON and just loud but when I hit the accelerator, engine was definitely still running! Slipped the key back in and slid to the ON position then off , that did the trick. restarted and shut down fine a few seconds later. Hope this isn't the next gremlin starting, the intricacy's/complexity of these cars may be over the edge...makes me nervious, wonder if it would have shifted into gear w the key out?
