Ebpv

I just hooked my ebpv to be used as a brake and it worked fine for one day and now when i flip the switch it does nothing?!? I already checked to see if power was getting to the plug, check my inline fuse I put in, i also checked to see if the valve got stuck somehow so i manually moved the valve. is there anything else that could be wrong that I missed I dont know why it worked fine one day and not the next

in case you want to know how i hooked it up i pretty much used this setup

Send a message via AIM to purduefarmboy460
have you put a test light on the wire to make sure that power is getting there? got all your connections made very well??? Sounds like if it was working, now isn't, you have a bad connection

Fixed the problem, one the diode wires broke, must of bent a couple times to many. But thanks for all the quick replys and help I appreciate it. O yea another thing, good thing I did this mod because it made me notice the 2 top bolts on my turbo were missing I just got done puttin new ones in. that was a pain in the a$$, not easy to wrench anything back there.
