Car=evil. I'll be running without A/C until I can devise a solution to protect it from heat, shock, and moisture. My solution thus far is as so: butter the board with thermal epoxy to electronically insulate it, sand it flat, mount CPU heatsinks on either side, power fans from a 12 volt line in the car. For shock protection, simply multimeter the maximum input, wire a fuse in-line accordingly. I may torch this board in the process, but it's better than replacing the fucking thing every three months.
and of course they don't explain HOW the duck keeps you awake...
have you considered taking your car to a real mechanic?
It'd be far over $100, and it would just fail again. If GM refuses to re-engineer the part, I will.
right. keep on doing small temporary fixes that will cost you more in the long run, both in money and in sanity.
That would be the result if I took it to a mechanic. They'd
10 install another poorly protected part for about $120, that would only succumb to moisture or heat in about three months, then fail.
20 GOTO 10.
This solution will cost me about $15, take 2 hours to install, and most likely never fail again. If there's one thing I know well, it's microcomputer engineering, and this is a simple fix method I've done countless times. It's fun and rewarding to me. I do this for a living, and my design has been approved by four different automotive design professionals, one who has a master's degree in electrical engineering.
Thats what I call some hardcore motorskills.
