A/C Problem Fixed (CCRM)

The Constant Control Relay Module (CCRM) was the source of my A/C not working.  It had been out for about a week and was pure torture.  For those that are not familiar, the CCRM is the little box below the air filter that houses 5 relays on a printed circuit board.  The relays send power to the a/c clutch, fuel pump, and PCM among other things.  Before going to the dealership to buy the $172 part, I decided to open it up and have a look see.  After drilling out the rivets that hold the housing together I opened it up and quickly realized that a solder had broken off.  Looks like my hot shot intake shook it into submission.  After scraping the rubber down to the copper tracing I soldering the living crap out of it so that it wouldn't happen again.  I then rivoted it shut and added some padding between the bracket and chasis, and between my custom air box and the CCRM housing. The a/c is back on and is as cold as ever because I added some refrigerant after listening to all the self proclaimed mechanics at work.  Anyhow, I couldn't find anything on the web that went into this much detail so I thought that I would post this to try and help all you sweaty bastards out there that are driving without a working a/c.  :lol:
