Raided the local PnP. Got a Drain Valve and A pillar cover in good condition. Sunroof drain problem solved.

Next: Repair the wiring damage.

Indeed
Today tried to trouble shoot ECM-432B without doing any wire tracing.
Translation - frustrate oneself needlessly and proclaim the car has electrical demons.

Electrical is the system that best responds to logic and a systematic approach.

Agreed. Guessing isn't going to solve anything... although it sounds much easier.

People who cannot do comparative analysis might resort to religions belief or guessing. I am not one of them people.

ECM-432B Leak detection module, valve - single missing is history.

Solder Seal Heat Shrink Butt Wire Splices turned out to be the way to go in that tight space. It was a lot easier because, once it got started the Shrink tube held it all together until the solder melted. Also it is a lot easier to work hot air from a heat gun in a tight space. Most people have a heat gun stored in the bathroom, you know it as a blow dryer.

The Solder Seal Heat Shrink Butt Wire Splices worked OK, way better the crimp connectors, but next time I use them I am going to put a drop of Liquid Rosin on the joint for better solder flow.



Next get the engine running right.

Not going to get a lot done this week. April showers are overextending their welcome.

Ugh I hate rain. It's supposed to get into the high 90s by Memorial Day around here, not looking forward to that! The high 80s we have now is miserable enough!
