Electrical issue?

My 2005 SSR shuts down when it warms up. Will not restart for a half hour or more. Anyone know how to resolve this issue?

Sounds like the classic fuse box fail , look up the fix on Dictators one drive , probably not a fix you will want to try yourself , but I think Dick and others have an exchange program. Hopefully one of those offering repair will chime in , meantime and consider becoming a supporting member -- it will make using the site SOOO much easier!

Sounds like the well-documented “under hood fuse box wire break” issue. Click the link below for a thread on the issue:

Dales Classic c, I agree with the Fuse box issue. There is a "jumper Wire", temporary fix, someone close by could loan you to prove the problem, if we know where you are!!! AND-- Welcome from Forney Texas!!! You will discover that you have found the BEST FORUM ever!---Consider going to "Tools" in the red banner, click on "User CP" go to "Your Profile" then click "Edit Your Details". Then, whenever you "post" something, it will show in the left column under your name, like the rest of us, and we will know where you are and what you drive. Then if you have a problem, someone close by might be able to help out.

--Also if you haven't yet, go to "FORUMS", "SSRFanatics News & Polls", click "New Member section", click "Post New Thread" and introduce Yourself!!

Looks like the ball is back in your court. Let us know where you are and someone may be nearby with a temporary jumper to prove the suggested problem and get you back on the road. Do not take it to a dealer until you know whether or not this Fuse Box issue is actually the problem. That part is expensive if it needs to be replaced and relatively inexpensive to fix if you know someone who is experienced in the repair.

If you know how to use a voltmeter or testlight to test fuses then you can test for a possible fuse box issue right at the fuse box when the problem is occurring, when the car won't start -testing when its running will provide a base voltage so you can see it changed!

Picture 1 -- from ED in Fla shows the broken part of the fuse box causes relay 42 to de-energize (shut off) this would then shut off power to 6 fuses .
Picture 2 shows in green highlight the 6 fuses which would not have voltage if relay 42 were to shut off.

Important notes
- this procedure will discussed/explained during my tech lesson at the Maggie Valley 2019 rally
- this same symptom may also be caused by a bad relay, broken wire outside of the fuse box or faulty relay control module --

It's a broken wire during manufacturing in another 05 fuse box, I did two last week.

Best to fix it permeant as Ed said about his "jumper" it is "only a temporary fix".

I do exchange program, send "bad" fuse box to me, I will repair send back next day, normally.

I take PayPal.

OR go to my SSR How to Library: Look up FUSE BOX REPAIR.

You or someone you know may be able to remove/replace wire.

Transmission Control Module

After driving my 2005 SSR for about 30 minutes, stopped to get a drink. SSR dashboard went haywire. all warning lights came on. I turned off the engine, waited a few minutes. All warning lights came on. Sluggish to drive. a friend read the codes and came up with U0101 - Transmission Control Module. Could that be the problem? If so, can a dealer repair or do I need a Transmission Place?

amonci, Do like Autoprof said. Start your own thread in, go to Forums, SSR Discussion, click on SSR Technical Discussion, and start your own new thread so information for you won't get mixed with other peoples problems. OH, Welcome and Go to New Member Section and Introduce yourself.

My 05 SSR's air conditioner quit working. I was told by a mechanic that it is bc the fan needs to be replaced. Fan appears to be working but I ordered one from Simple Engineering. Am I on the right track ? Thanks in advance.

You are headed in the right direction. The new fan cannot hurt. You might also need some work on the AC itself. after you install the new fan post a new thread in the Technical Discussion Forum and let us know how it turned out. If needed others are sure to chime in then.

The Chevy dealership wanted $1,100 to replace my fuse box!

Important lesson here. What ever you do don't go there unless last resort.
