Congratulations ED... I already knew who I would ask if I had any R electrical problems so it's great that you volunteered to help us all out.

So glad you decided to buy that R when you did.

We'll keep you busy in retirement I'm sure.

Hey Ed I have a complete ssr dash in my 51 Chevy had to put in street rod wipers not enough room for ssr setup which wires coming from turn lever go to wipers, seems strange that they took them into the engine bay then back through the firewall on the right? Also 2 of my heater controls don't light up bulb? One more I'm going to make the tail gate sw in the glove box oper my trunk, but don't see where the wire goes to rear in the loom, thanks for any help, Mike 1951ssr

Hooking Up Accessory To Brake Circuit

Hi Ed and others. I have an lighted windscreen I would like to connect it to the brake circuit so the light on the screen comes on when I engage the brakes and shuts off when I disengage. The wires are coming out of the screen in the cabin and I want to route them to the brake circuit wires as easily as possible. Connecting to the fuse box behind the seat doesn't work as the brake fuse circuit when taped does not go on and off... it stays hot. I have a vampire connector to connect the positive lead. Unfortunately the manufacturer of the screen was of no help when I asked this question. Thanks-Ron

Ed to the rescue

While at Maggie and attending the car show who should appear but" Ready Eddie the Kilowatt Guru". My problem was at nite the glare:crazy from the led windscreen would hinder my vision. A quick fix was in order and perhaps an on/off switch would be in the future...Thanks ED you're the best!!!!!;)

Hi guys
Like to Know where is locate ecm box on m'y 2003 ssr
ECM, or PCM, depending which part of the manual you read, is located drivers side engine compartment, near radiator.

It will have a rubber boot over the unit.

ONLY 03/04 were protected with rubber boot over ECM. 05/06 are not.

ECM, Engine Control Module
PCM, Power Control Module

Both the same.

The sweep to right, then back to normal is normal for all SSRs.
