959 Project: A/C & Heater Troubleshooting... (10-25-07)

Hi all. I was able to do some more work on the 959 today. Since yesterday's drive was unbearable due to the heat on full blast, I decided to tackle the problem today. The factory manual states that if any of the 3 temperature sensors are disconnected, then the heater will go to full blast with no method to turn it off (I guess that's a warning). If one of the sensors shorts out, then it goes to full cold. So, I took the thing apart today, and tested all of the temp sensors, and they all tested fine. Then I went to the fuse box and tested the heater valve coil located in the engine compartment - that tested fine too, although it wasn't getting power like it should be, which indicates that the control unit wasn't sending the right signals. So, my conclusion was that the control unit was faulty.

Usually with older electronics like these, the big problem is what is called a cold solder joint. I talk about this in my DME repair article: http://www.pelicanparts.com/bmw/techarticles/E36-DME-Repair/E36-DME-Repair.htm The solution is to reflow the solder. Well, on this particular unit, that's very difficult, and it looks like someone already tried to repair the unit that way anyways (which is always a bad sign). Basically the insides of this thing look awful (see pics below). So, what I'm going to try to do instead is adapt a 944 AC control unit to work in this car (if an original 959 is not available from the factory). The control units look exactly the same on the front and back - I think the main difference is the outer case of the unit. I would be surprised if Hella made a special unit just for the 959 - seems unlikely. Also, all of the sensors seem to carry over from the 928 & 944 cars. Makes sense that it would be the same unit - they seemed to have used it on the 944 up through the 968 cars, and including the 928. So, there's hope in case an original one is not available.

Here's the photos from today...

First shot is a daily 959 shot. Looks nice huh?



Here I am using four small screwdrivers in lieu of the radio removal tool (coming tomorrow). When I inserted the screwdrivers and pushed on the rear of the unit with my hand, it simply popped out.



Here I am pulling the unit out. It says in big letters "code protected", and I certainly don't have the code, and don't want to have to chase down a code for a 20-year old stereo, so I left it plugged in. Weird though, as I have disconnected the battery for several days, and it didn't ask me for a code. Still, I'm not going to temp fate - maybe there is a switch built into the connector that activates the "code required" feature. Actually, that would make a lot of sense, as disconnecting the battery for service is pretty common. Although as a theif, I guess you would just cut the harness. Oh well, who knows...



Front of the radio. This was standard equipment on the 959. Lots of buttons on the front, I'm not sure what many of them mean (ARI, CPS?, M, U?). I would love to get a manual for this, anyone know of where someone might have one? Maybe downloadable on the net? I'll have to check...



Here's the side of the radio, that looks like a 911 part number there.



The top with a bunch of information, most of it in German, of course...



In the center of this photo is the screw you need to get to in order to remove the AC control unit. I think the outer housing is what makes this unit unique to the 959. Hopefully a plain vanilla 944 control unit will work.



Prying off the plate. I'd hate to snap this - I used a lot of caution, as I always do tugging on things on this car...

Here's the AC control unit with the face removed. Two screws, and it can be lifted out.



I removed this small plastic piece in order to make it easier to slide out the control unit. I didn't want it to get scratched.



Here's the unit removed. It's a bit more complicated than I expected it to be. Let's hope the insides look a bit simpler. After all, it's just a switch that takes in 3-4 temp sensors, and controls a few valves and relays, right?



Here's the back where the three harnesses connect to. Note the 959 part number which bodes poorly for availability.



Hmm, this doesn't look factory. Looks like someone has been in here before and marked the harnesses with some type of white marker.



Okay, time to check the temp sensors. All three read the same value, which was on par for room temperature. When I started and ran the car, the values went up as the car got hotter. All three seem to be working well, which is disappointing, as they would be easy to replace.



The other end of the multimeter goes into the electrical harness to check the resistance. The factory manuals tell me which pins to check. The 959 manual, suprisingly, is very well written with lots of detailed information on how to troubleshoot most of the stuff on the car. Since this is similar to identical to the 944/968/928 climate control unit, I will check my other manuals tomorrow to see if there is any more additional information I can glean on the system.



HA HA. Jeepers, This is a mess and looks complicated. The factory workshop manual told me to remove harness "R" and check pins 12 and 13 for voltage and resistance of the heater coil (harness "R" is on the right - the black/pink one that is disconnected). Note the crappy alarm system wiring on the left - we'll have to deconstruct that one day in the future, but first things first. That cable hanging down in the middle is the antenna cable from the radio. The harness checked out with the proper resistance values for the coil in the water valve, so that means the wiring is good and it's connected. It did not check out for power to the coil, which means most like a problem with the control unit.



Back at home, here is my control unit on my workbench. Crap, this thing looks complicated.



Prying off the clear plastic lid takes patience - you don't want to damage this thing, as it's likely that it's unavailable. Unfortunately, there are signs that it's already been opened (bad sign).

Whoops, definite deer tracks here. See the bottom of the knob? it's indented where someone already pried it off with a small screwdriver. Crap, that means that either someone tried to fix it already and screwed it up, or it's been broken before, and someone tried to fix it and couldn't. This doesn't bode well for a repair of this particular unit. Time to start shopping for a replacement.



Testing the continuity of the pins. This one controls the heater valve. Unfortunately, the way this unit is constructed, you almost have to desolder and destroy the thing in order to get it open to test. Also, it looks like someone tried to reflow all the solder, and created a huge mess. Some of the traces are lifted, and one of the transistors is damaged because someone nicked it with a soldering iron. Seems unlikely that I will be able to fix this.







Here is that nicked transistor. Man, I hate this new camera for close-up shots. Far away, outdoors shots, the thing is great, but indoors, and closeup, it sucks eggs.




Here's a photo of a broken clear plastic tab, more evidence of a sloppy attempt at a repair.



I thought that maybe this relay was bad, so I checked it out extensively by applying a 9V battery to it. Checked out okay, and it only seems to control the blower motor, which works fine (tested the continuity of the relay and traced it back to the blower motor switch).

Well, the good news is that (as someone else suggested on an earlier thread) the 944/928/968 AC control units seem to be *exactly* the same as this one used in the 959. There is hope. The mounting case seems different, which would be sweet if I could just swap the cases. Tomorrow, I will dig out the 944/928/968 factory workshop manuals and/or electrical diagrams, and I will compare the pinouts from the 944 unit to the pinouts on the 959 unit. You'd hate to make a mistake and fry something in the car. I'm suspecting that they are the same though. At the very least, perhaps a 944 unit can be used to repair this one.

Here's a photo of the front and back of the 944 unit, it looks exactly the same to the one that I have, with the exception of the mounting case:



As luck would have it, here's one on eBay (please don't bid against me):

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=012&sspagename=STRK%3AMEBI%3AIT&viewitem=&item=220163019353&rd=1

I'm away for SEMA next week, so I'm hoping that I can get a few of these (the original 959 one if possible, a used 944 one, or maybe a new 944 unit) and compare them on the bench. This gives me hope that I can get this fixed, it would really bug me if the control unit was unavailable and non-repairable. I'm actually thinking that the 959 unit is probably no longer available, as why would someone already have gone into this unit and tried to repair it. List price on the 959 unit is about $1100, which while expensive, is less than the price of the 964 unit ($1700), and a little more than the 944 unit ($800). It's difficult to think that a mechanic at a shop would try to repair this unit instead of buying a new one if it were available. Of course, here I am trying to repair it, but that's just part of the fun - regular mechanics just don't do that normally.

Cheers - I'm out of town all next week at SEMA and Daytona, so there probably won't be any updates for a while, unless I can get some more work done tomorrow...

-Wayne

Never thought heater controls were so exciting. That pix of wiring harnesses is amazing, I could screw that up very quickly.

Wayne, I have a used late 944 heater/air control unit you're welcome to - I'm happy to donate to the cause. The plastic pieces/housing is a bit beaten up but the internal circuitry should be fine. Let me know if you want it. Works fine - it came out of my 951. I replaced it with a "fresher" unit with nicer-looking plastic pieces and buttons that weren't worn out and kept this one as a spare. . .

Not sure about the rest of the radio nomenclature, but ARI stands for Automatic Radio Information. It was a European deal in the 80's where radio stations could broadcast traffic information on a separate signal and 'break in' to your normal listening enjoyment. There was a seperate volume adjustment on my '84 Blaupunkt Aspen, which had this feature, so you wouldn't miss the info if you had the volume turned down on the radio.

Just trying to help out the cause! It sure is the ultimate 911 and a dream car for most of us.
Keep up the good work.

ARI - automatic radio information system it connects to a separate module that could recieve loacl radio traffic reports, never used it , don't know if it's still viable.

U - FM 87.5 - 108MHZ
M - AM 520 -1605 kHz
L - long wave 150 - 285 kHz i think we call it short wave overhere

Wayne, perhaps a call to Loren (don't mention Chips!) or John at Otto's would be a good idea-- they can either diagnose and repair the unit or source a replacement, and might be helpful in determining whether the circuits are the same, i.e. whether the resistance values the 959 senders output are the same as those from the other cars.

It's too bad we can't call the factory and ask. . .

agree with that... radio shack stuff is the absolute worst.

i have a $3 harbor freight digital multi tester that works much better than a $50 auto ranging radio shack unit.

home depot multi testers may be the best quality for the $.

Wayne, as usual a teriffic writeup of your car issues. Thanks for the labor of love.

I don't know if you know about Bojo tools, but they make pry tools out of nylon reinforced plastic that are a godsend when working in the dashboard.

I got mine from Aircraft Spruce, no affiliation, for about 20 bucks and I know I have saved that money many times over.

It's true, a high-quality multimeter is something that I am missing from my collection - but I've never really had any problems with these. I do have a lab-quality Techtronics unit, but it's too big and requires you to plug it in...

On the close up shots/camera front - if it's a sony or other similar brand, try turning on the macro mode for close up shots - should be represented by a little "flower" icon on the button to activate it. A similar "flower" icon should appear on the display letting you know you are now in that macro mode. Hope this helps. Been following these 959 threads. Great stuff!!!

Those were taken in macro mode - the problem is that the camera has such a big fixed lens, that it's minimum focal length is like 18 inches or so. I just need to use my other camera for these close up shots...

Wayne, maybe this is a 'common' 959 problem? On the one that was at my mechanic's, it also needed a new a/c head. Only two data points you say? Hey, that's already 1% of the population . Take heart, as of '05, they were still available from PAG!!
