Teething problems... Now the AC compressor doesn't kick in. It was raining yesterday, no AC, no defrost, foggy windshield...

AND no music... except for the tailpipes. Still having difficulties getting the insurance to send someone to look at the tore up dash from the stereo thief. I have USAA, and have has claims with them in the past. They have always been on point. This is the first time they have ever dropped the ball. Starting to get pissed. I really don't like being without my tunes.

Wife is taking me for a weekend away tomorrow. (23rd anniversary) I need it with all the crap gone wrong lately. Monday I'm just gonna make an appointment to get her fixed and send USAA the bill.

Make sure the A/C plug at the compressor is pushed in 100% until you hear or feel it click or it wonít turn on. I did a Louisville with temps in the 90ís on the way home with a PISSED wife all because of not fully seating it. It can be stubborn and feel fine but nope. Check all related plugs as well, I believe three in all.

Same trip home was also done entirely with open cut outs due to the actuating rod snapping in half leaving the hotel and showing off. But thatís another story and a story I try not to bring up around the wife...

Even I couldnít wait to get home in the A/C and give my ears a few days to regain hearing!

Like Bob said, definitely check the plug on the compressor. Yesterday I was driving and all the sudden my a/c wasn't working. While troubleshooting I found the two wires came out of the plug. For some reason the retaining function of the pins doesn't work anymore. Pushed it all back together and taped it up. All good now!

When I said COD I mean you pay Shipping / Handleing. The Kenwood stereo is free.

Thank you for the offer. I misunderstood. Very generous. I did not know there was a way to send something so that the shipping was COD, but that is a cheap way to get a replacement... With USAA acting up I'll take anything I can get. They are normally on the ball, but are using some company called Premier (out of CA) to do the response, and I can't even get them to call and schedule a time to come look at the car. Whatever shipping will cost will be well worth it to have tunes again. PM sent again...
