crap, sorry for not being able to do this, but I'm not that savvy with regards to finding the thermostat housing, or the A/C dryer.
Is the thermostat housing accesible from the engine bay? I'd rather do that test than the "shorting out" one.
Arthur, I checked all the fuses and they all were good (tested with fluke meter).
tkamiya, If I attach a pix of that area can you tell me which of the connectors there is the one I need to disconnect?
