trevdalocal Liquid cooled IDM, haha. Glad you found the problem!

Patrick Feeley Here is how the E-series vans attempted to solve the water intrusion problem: TSB 96-19-09
Cheers!

White95f250 Glad you got it figured out and thanks for following up.

@[email protected] might have a replacement recommendation but most go with Swamps IDM as an upgrade.

pcausey2017 Well the problem became very obvious when I pulled the IDM out for closer inspection. Unless this is some special liquid model I don't think they're supposed to make sloshing sounds when you shake them. This one seems to be full of water. Thanks to those who gave me good input here, I do appreciate it.

pcausey2017 Yesterday evening I paid a guy to come out here and read the codes. We got a consistent "IDM failure to communicate" and it came back again each time we cleared codes. I'm pulling it this morning for inspection but my first guess is water damage because as i'm looking at it right now it is exposed to water dripping down from the windshield drip rail right on top of it. Talk about an absolutely horrible mounting location. So does anyone recommend a particular replacement as being the best and most resistant to water?

Patrick Feeley By now, I would imagine most of the early 94s and 95s have been reflashed when in for service to enable the OBDII port. I'd take the chance as you wouldn't be out much. Cheers!

Not sure about 95. I've read that 95 was an oddball year for that diagnostic connector, something about the ECU could be updated to use it with OBD2 or something. For $10, it's worth a shot though. And even if it doesn't work, it'll work on modern, OBD2 compliant vehicles to read codes and view live data. So not a waste by any means...

They do sell more expensive ones that are "guaranteed" to do the job.
