Do you have a volt meter? Check for resistance.. If it's not crazy low/ zero then it's blown.

Fuses are cheap you could always just replace and check the connections as well.

Shows the location of the fan relays and fusing. this diagram should also be inside the lid of your box.

The fans still turn on so it is not a fuse problem. If the fuses were bad the fans wouldn't ever turn on. If the fans are turning on to late, I would suspect an air bubble in the system, or somehow the signal to the ecu is getting affected.

Started to run the wires for my pass heated seat tonight. Getting the wires through the rubber covering between the door and car was a PITA.

I concur, perhaps a bad rad cap...

Are we setting it up for R134?
Lawn air-conditioning sweet...

You do mean just open the water again? You should have a main shut off valve setup/backflow-preventer somewhere. Either its shut off there, or at a main shut off up-line from there. Mine for instance is next to my main water inlet into the house right after it hits the pressure tank. Turn that on & there would be pressure into my main valve body & line for all the zone valves.

I'm sure someone else on here in the poky area has an in-ground setup. Wayne?

Like he said look for a valve off the main line inside that's closed. Mines right off where it enters the house before my water softener and such.

If you have open drain valves you'll notice when you open the main inlet to the sprinkler system ( mine is next to the house main by my furnace)

So open the main and if you have already open drains close those. Done. You'll get air through em as it fills up. Keep an eye on it for the first day or two to check for leaks since it froze early last year.

Plastic zone valves or the main backflow? Above ground (backflow anyway)?
Was a fairly mild winter, surprised to hear of damage. I just blow it out, leave zone valves open partially at least, drain it in the basement, that covers it.

Interesting. Have you found a underground box yet with the zone valves? I would check them over. Is one valve works and another does not swap plugs to see if its the power to it or valve.

Yup, a full system should have:
- Main line in>backflow preventer>Main line around the yard.
- valves tee'd off of the main line to the line for each zone. (usually in sub-ground boxes)
- electronic control box to control all the valves so you can set time/duration/etc for each zone.

Each valve should be able to be manually opened, so once you get main pressure on, you can test all of them one way or another, even if your electronics aren't hooked up or working right.
Each head will probably also be adjustable in one way or another for (some of these) volume/spray pattern/distance/angle/etc.

Once ya get familiar with your layout, and get all the heads adjusted accurately, they're super nice to have. They're also fairly easy to install/repair/expand without much hassle or needing $$$ tools or anything. Automated drip setups for flowerbeds/greenhouses are a cinch. I wouldn't have a nice lawn without it (not that I do...)

Can 'o worms boy...

So, to be clear, are you asking about the caliper>hub mounting bolts? (technically, thru-hub-into-caliper moutning bolts) I.E. you pulled your calipers off to change rotors?

Well, here's the dispute. FSM calls for 114lb/ft. Lots of people use that. Lots of people strip out or break bolts. People have called Brembo on this, and they seem to say 80lb/ft. If so, that's a decent difference. People have been using the 80 spec for some time with no issues.
