As laid out yesterday, we are in ambulance mode! Big day yesterday…it’s starting to look like one! The cab is wired but for the horn and by golly I figured out 1 bad part that was killing us on the unified door lock system. These ambulances aren’t like anything on “Engine 51″….backup camera in the mirror, electrionic box on…digital switching As any good red neck would do….I pitched that special Swiss made never seen before part and replaced it with 2 easy to find Borsch relays Remember now, we had no diagram….yeeehaaa, that was fun!! Just like in wiring I do with the GMC’s, I want things to be repaired with parts they can get! I mean why do manufacturers do that? The problem in this case the box was wired in a classic GM 70’s door lock switch system but the triggers coming out of the computer controlled cab. Had to first use the 2 relays to isolate then2 for inversion to run the door lock solenoids…….. Gotta know how to use a relay. Anyway it WAS fun for me.
Gotta go, I’m parts runner..gotta find those last few special little parts…wish us luck….Tomorrow the unit goes into the Daytona Civic center for an EMS show….hey…no pressure!!!!! See ya on the other side…..
