Eventually I found out the "venter blower" is what turns on which in turn points to a short or bad circuit board. I've purchased a new circuit board which contains a 9 pin connector. There is a new 9 pin connector with 5 empty slots for wires from the old connector. PROBLEM is I have not been able to remove wires from the old connector.
QUESTION, can I simply plug in the old connector into the receptacle on the new circuit board. All the wires match but I hate to do this if there is some not too obvious problem doing this.
