Thermal Control Amp. Bypass question
I have an 02 X. The AC compressor clicks on and off randomly (mostly off). The cooler it is outside the more the compressor stays on. I checked the system pressure and it is good indicating that I do not have a leak. I jumpered the magnetic clutch on the compressor to keep it on and the air is ice cold. From what I have read from other posts, I might have a bad thermal control amplifier. I ordered the part last night ($38 out the door online). I then tried to bypass the thermal control amp so I would have cold air while I wait for the new part to come in. I know, bad idea. The thermal control amp has three wires (red, black, white). I put the red and white together and the compressor kicked on for a second then I accidently contacted the black connection. I got a spark and compressor went off. I restored the TCA to the original configuration but now my AC light on the switch will not come on. Apparrently, I shorted something out. I checked all fuses and relays. Everything is good. Any ideas on what I might have messed up? Also, when I was testing relays, I noticed my fog lights do not work (not sure if is related or not). When I get home tonight I will use a multimeter to check all the fuse connections. Anything else I should check?
I am new. This is my first post. You guys seem great and I will appreciate any input. Thank you!
